20 new mentors for teens participated in Moving Traditions National Training Conference in Boston, July 16-18, 2017.
This is by far the best professional development I have ever received. The skills I have learned are incredibly valuable and meaningful for my work with teens and beyond. Thank you Moving Traditions, for giving me the opportunity to learn, heal, grow, and connect, and to be more prepared and equipped to help guide our teens through the most important years of their lives, ultimately leading them to be impactful Jewish people who can make positive change in the world.
I felt like this was a really great opportunity to connect with other leaders and facilitators to share stories, learn techniques and generally up our game together. I never felt talked down to, but rather like I was part of the conversation from beginning to end.
