Moving Traditions: Engaging Teens Through Gender-Based Programming

Friday, December 8, 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. (Youth Engagement)

Moving Traditions’ research based and field-tested programs address the most challenging issues facing today’s teens as they navigate the often-confusing time of adolescence. Particularly, today’s teens are tasked with tackling a balance between the digital world and “real life.” Moving Traditions groups create safe space with a trained adult mentor to meet teens where they are and create a framework of Jewish community and wisdom. Teens experience support and gain tools around de-stressing, relationship and communication skills, challenging stereotypes, self-discovery and empowering authenticity. Meet with congregational leaders who have adopted this program and the professionals from Moving Traditions to learn more about this approach.
