Introducing: The Kadima Fellowship
For College and High School Students (in separate cohorts)
As a Kadima Fellow, You Will:
Pursue your career goals, gain valuable leadership skills, learn project management, and find meaning in your summer, while respecting social distancing
Gain a professional mentor in the field of law, medicine, TV and film, education, social work, social media/web design, accounting, youth engagement, non-profit, synagogue and Jewish organizational leadership, or other fields
Build a professional network of mentors, colleagues, and friends who can advocate for you in future professional pursuits
Sharpen project management skills through a career-path-inspired project that will highlight your unique skill set for future employers
Repair the world while collaborating on a group social justice initiative, and simultaneously strengthen your resume
Each week, Kadima Fellows will participate in 2 Seminars per week:
Leadership Development Seminar (once a week): Kadima Fellows will explore best practices in leadership, core management principles, entrepreneurship, change management, group formation, creative problem solving and innovation, and applied Jewish wisdom through interactive Zoom-based seminars. Presenters include successful business and organizational leaders from a diverse set of professions. Kadima Fellows will receive guidance on time management, organization, goal setting, study skills, transition issues, and resume help.
Kadima Fellows will sometimes be divided into college and high school cohorts.
Mentorship Meeting (every other week): Kadima Fellows will engage one-on-one with their assigned professional mentors. Mentors will share information about their own career path, as well as provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling. Mentors will help with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts, and identifying resources.
Social Justice Project Group (every other week): Both fellowship cohorts come together for this weekly meeting where we share lightbulb moments, project successes, challenges, and most importantly, collaborate on a social justice initiative of the fellows’ choice.
