…a lot of people in the room might be thinking that they can just gather a group of girls or boys with a skilled facilitator and replicate what Moving Traditions is doing. We have been a Moving Traditions partner since the very beginning, but we were content to do our own thing. As a result, the program lacked real impact. When Nicole got to town, she made contact with us to do “quality control.” And that’s exactly what happened when we started more meaningfully engaging with Moving Traditions: QUALITY control. By taking advantage of the evolving curriculum, the facilitator sessions, and the expertise of our regional director, our program is more robust, more educationally sound, and is making a real impact. The Moving Traditions staff and materials are a necessary piece of the puzzle.

The training is offered by a team of passionate, dedicated and high-energy professionals with a thoughtfully designed curriculum. The Moving Traditions team strives to arm Jewish educators (at all levels) with an accessible approach for facilitating as leaders/supervisors while igniting their love and interest in nurturing the growth and development of girls and boys.

Attending the Moving Traditions conference in Denver was a life-changing experience… I feel now, going forward into my group, that I am ready for the wonderful and rewarding challenges that will come my way.

–Group Leader Trainee, San Diego, CA

No matter how long you have worked with teens, no matter how well you think you understand teens, attending a Moving Traditions training will take your work to a new level.
