Special Edition Curriculum Webinar: Mean Girls

January 31 at 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EST

Mean Girls was a movie, then a Broadway show, and now a new and updated movie opening soon, combining the best of both! Most importantly, what they all have in common is they are centered on something we all care about: teenage social pressures.

To help you in your important work engaging Jewish youth, Moving Traditions is excited to invite you to a webinar to learn how social pressures affect Jewish teens today, how Moving Traditions programs can help you meet the needs of your pre-teens and teens AND to offer you a free Special Edition Curriculum: From Kvetch to Fetch*: “Mean Girls” to Menschy Teens. This session can help you address issues of peer pressure, stress and bullying in your community. In this discussion guide, you’ll find resources that will explore how friends can be a source of social anxiety as well as a relief from it and reflect on how to pursue and nurture healthy friendships.

Moving Traditions offers a full suite of programs for Jewish youth in your community, and It’s not too late to bring these engaging and proven programs to your community this school year. Learn more about becoming a partner.

In addition to getting the curricular materials, training, and ongoing support for any programs you sign on for, Moving Traditions partners also get access to all of our Special Edition Curriculum like this session, with new materials throughout the year.

(And since the webinar will be on a Wednesday, feel free to wear pink!)

*The term fetch is a slang term from the original Mean Girls. In the movie, ‘Fetch’ is a slang term which the character Gretchen Weiner repeatedly uses throughout the film, hoping it will become a new it-word for ‘cool’ or ‘awesome’.  However, her classmates reject it.
