PEER LEADERSHIP FELLOWS
4Front’s Peer Leadership Fellows is a paid internship that trains and empowers teens to be communal connectors! Fellows learn how to build relationships, engage their peers in meaningful, identity-based conversation, and connect their social networks to the vast menu of opportunities available to teens in the Baltimore Jewish community and beyond.
Throughout the year, fellows will meet monthly (both in person and virtually), beginning with an immersive leadership training experience and followed by monthly training seminars and individual check-ins. These workshops and experiences provide opportunities for real-world skill building in social network mapping, communication, community organizing, and peer-to-peer engagement following the nationally recognized Hillel campus curriculum. In addition, Fellows will receive training in teen mental health to enhance awareness and increase their ability to support their peers. Our Peer Leadership Fellows play a critical role in ensuring teens in the Baltimore feel connected to and safe in our Jewish community.
- Opening PLF Retreat: Start the year with an immersive relational engagement and skill-building experience, plus a potential opportunity to connect with other Fellows and communities from throughout the country (covid pending).
- Monthly Training Seminars: Fellows receive training in relational engagement, empathetic listening, inclusion awareness and advocacy, and leadership skills development that will be applied to peer network engagement. Seminars will take place monthly on Sundays.
- Monthly Check-ins: Throughout the year, Fellows will have monthly check ins with program staff to review progress, identify strategies for success, and discuss their Jewish journey.
Program Stipend- Fellows receive a $250 stipend, which is an investment in their work as leaders in our community, and recognizes this effort as a job with accountability, resume prestige, training, and deliverables. Fellows devote approximately eight hours per month to the program, with the majority of that time flexible to each Fellow’s schedule.
