Join us for BaMidbar’s flagship professional development program: Mental, Emotional and Social Health Through Experiential Education course. This course is being offered in collaboration with Combined Jewish Philanthropies and Gateways as a part of the Developing Minds capacity-building initiative.

Jewish communal professionals are uniquely situated to create positive environments where not only Jewish learning but also mental health and wellbeing can flourish. This cohort-based program is designed to support professionals who work with Jewish teens and young adults in expanding their understanding of mental health and wellness through an experiential approach and a Jewish lens in order to actively promote resilience and help their students thrive.

By participating in MESH-EE, teen and young adult-facing engagement professionals build the knowledge, skills and confidence to:

  1. Promote healthy social and emotional development for the populations they serve
  2. Recognize when youth and young adults are at risk of experiencing mental health challenges
  3. Intervene early and appropriately when mental health challenges arise
  4. Explore connections between Jewish tradition and mental health and wellness
  5. Create Jewish educational experiences through a whole-health wellness lens

This course is designed for Massachusetts-based youth and young adult-serving Jewish community professionals interested in expanding their understanding of mental health, wellness and experiential learning in order to better support their students and actively promote social and emotional growth. If you are interested in a local cohort or bringing this content to your organization, please contact us using our Request More Info Form, and someone from the BaMidbar team will be in touch.

This course is free for those professionals whose employer organization is participating in Developing Minds.

Please note: While the JCC is under construction, entry access is located off of Winchester Street.
