The Wellness Fellowship trains and empowers teens to be change-makers in the ongoing conversation about mental health in the Jewish community. As advocates, teens work to increase awareness and decrease stigma around mental health through personal exploration, group learning, and field-based projects. Fellows receive monthly training seminars, mentoring check-ins, project mangement support, and resume building opportunities. Participants will receive a $500 stipend upon completion of the Fellowship.
Through the Fellowship, teens will:
- Build a passionate community: Join like-minded peers who want to take on an active leadership role addressing the youth mental health crisis.
- Engage in high-level training seminars: Dive deep into topics such as mental health awareness, advocacy, and wellness, and explore the ways in which these topics connect to Jewish identity and sense of personal resilience.
- Design and implement community-based mental health projects: Collaborate to identify concrete problems and work toward solutions that can make positive change in our community.
The Wellness Fellowship is offered by BaMidbar in partnership with Temple Beth Am, with generous support from the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles.
