MADRICHOL

מַדְרִיכֹל

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 MIFGASH MADRICHOL (9:30am-11:00am 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. This year, our Religious school madrichol will play an important technological role in their zoom classrooms. The partnership between teacher and madrich this year will really help make this virtual experience meaningful for everyone. 

Hebrew school KITAH MADRICHOL (Either 4pm-5pm or 4:30pm-5:30pm on Wednesday afternoons) This year, our Hebrew school madrichol will play an important technological role in their zoom classroom spaces. We have limited spaces for classroom madrichol this year. We have more space in Hebrew than in Religious school. You do not need Hebrew capabilities to be a Hebrew madrich. Please consider being with us on Wednesday. The partnership between teacher and madrich this year will really help make this virtual experience meaningful for everyone. 

Special projects MADRICHOL (dates and times will vary) We will need lots of help this year putting together boxes of supplies for each family to take home for their mifgash time. We will also need help with other random projects such as social media creation, tech opportunities and other creative projects! We will send occasional emails out about times where we will ask madrichol to come in with these projects! Madrichol will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. 

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.

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 a paid madrichol training about once a month throughout the school year. Our first training, which is mandatory, is September 30th, 2020 - 4:15pm-5:30pm.

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