LEADERSHIP PROGRAM: EACH YEAR WE SELECT APPROXIMATELY 12 FELLOWS WHO EITHER LIVE OR GO TO SCHOOL IN MARYLAND'S 7TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR TWO-YEAR PROGRAM IN THE MIDDLE OF WHICH IS A THREE WEEK TRIP TO ISRAEL.

THE INTENDED OUTCOME OF THESE WORKSHOPS IS TO INCREASE CULTURAL AWARENESS, REFINE LEADERSHIP SKILLS, PROVIDE EXPOSURE TO INFLUENTIAL COMMUNITY LEADERS AND ENCOURAGE DIALOGUE AROUND IMPORTANT TOPICS. THEY TRAVEL ALONGSIDE, LIVE WITH, AND BEFRIEND ISRAELI TEENS FROM THE VILLAGE. THESE TEENS ARE LARGELY REFUGEES, ORPHANS, OR NEW IMMIGRANTS OF ETHIOPIAN OR EASTERN EUROPEAN DESCENT. (CONTINUED ON SCHEDULE O)THE STUDENTS VISIT CULTURAL SITES OR ATTEND YOUTH DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS DURING THE DAY TO PERSUE HIGHER EDUCATION AND ADDITIONAL LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. UPON RETURNING FROM ISRAEL FELLOWS ARE ENGAGED IN SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS IN ORDER TO INCREASE THEIR ADVOCACY SKILLS. VENUES INCLUDE SYNAGOGUES, CHURCHES, SCHOOLS AND NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS.
