Enabling madrichim to safely take on responsibility for the participants in their care and run effective programmes.
LEADING THE LEADERS
The UJIA Informal Education Department provides bespoke training and support to enable madrichim (leaders) to safely take on responsibility for the participants in their care and run effective programmes.
Jewish youth movements are peer led organisations where volunteers aged 15 to 23 play key leadership roles in staffing programmes year-round, such as weekly meetings, day and residential camps and Israel Tours.
We seek to educate, train and inspire madrichim, so that they can inspire their participants about Judaism and Israel – this is crucial for securing our future.
We help with Israel engagement programming, Jewish texts and values, leadership skills such as role modelling, understanding welfare or pastoral care and safeguarding.
Training opportunities include:
- Summer and winter pre-camp training
- Hadracha (leadership) courses
- Chazon (youth movement worker induction training seminar)
- UJS Chazon
- Safeguarding training
- Youth Mental Health Awareness Training
- Israel Tour madrichim seminars
- UJIA Lead Now (professional development programme for youth movement and UJS sabbatical workers)
- Israel engagement seminars and training
"We educate, train and inspire madrichim, and help them inspire their participants to do likewise."
