At Am Shalom, our madrichol are our teenage classroom aides (grades 8-12) who help to guide the younger students and are vital parts in making our school thrive. With a generous grant from the Gutman family, we have been able to have over 70 different teenagers participate in our madrichol program during this past school year and receive compensation for doing so! Our madrichol program is a great way for teens to develop leadership skills, experience mentoring younger children, and develop classroom management skills.

What can I sign up to do at Am Shalom?

Sunday School CLASSROOM MADRICHOL (9:15am-11:30am on Sunday mornings) Often our religious school madrichol work with their teachers to teach part of a lesson by reading a story to their students, explaining an art project or running games during a break.

Sunday School PROJECT MADRICHOL (9:15am-11:30am on Sunday mornings) If working in a classroom is not your thing, we’d love to help you find a place here at Am Shalom in a different capacity. We’d love photographers, bloggers, techies, artists, etc. Let’s chat about creating a different role for you!

Shir Chadash MUSICAL MADRICHOL (8:45-11:30am on Sunday mornings and some Friday evenings) Shir Chadash is our teen band who helps lead Sunday morning T’fillah, and occasional Shabbat services.

Hebrew school CLASSROOM MADRICHOL (4pm-6:15pm on Wednesday afternoons) Our Hebrew school madrichol often work with students one on one outside of the classroom, and/or teach games/activities in the classroom.

DROP-IN MADRICHOL: kids hang out before Hebrew School (starts at 3:15pm on Wednesdays) We need help selling snacks, running activities, managing students in the hallways, etc. If you are able to get here by 3:45pm to help out, we will pay you extra for this session!

What does the commitment mean?

Madrichol are expected to attend 75% of the classes and to be in regular communication with their teachers. On a day that they cannot attend they must let their teacher, Kadi, and/or Rabbi Anne know. Madrichol only receive compensation for sessions that they attend and sign in!

If you can only make part of the year/some of the weeks, we would love to still find a role for you. Please apply and chat more with us about this!

We will have several madrichol trainings throughout the school year that are mandatory.
Our first training is September 7, 2019 - 4pm-8pm. (Madrichol are compensated for these trainings as well.)

Once you’ve submitted your application, we will contact you to set up a one-on-one meetings in August. Please let us know if you have any questions!


Applications received by August 1st will be given preference in setting up their meeting times!

Parents, we expect that the students will fill out this application on their own!
Please encourage them to do so.
