Madrichim

In Hebrew, the word Madrichim means "Guides." At Am Shalom, we use the term Madrichim to refer to our teenage classroom aides who play a vital role in our school. Thanks to a generous grant from the Gutman family, more than 70 teenagers participated in our Madrichim program for the 2018-19 school year. Our Madrichim program is a great way for teens to develop leadership skills, mentor younger children and develop classroom management skills. Our Madrichim program is a great option for teenagers from 8th to 12th grade. Seventh graders are invited to participate in the Madrichim training program as part of their classroom experience.

Participation in the program includes:

  • Sunday School madrichim (9:15am-11:45am on Sunday mornings) Often our religious school madrichim 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.
  • Shir Chadash (9:15am-11:45am 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 madrichim (4pm-6:15pm on Wednesday afternoons) Our Hebrew school madrichim often work with students one on one outside of the classroom, and/or teach games/activities in the classroom.
  • Drop-in: kids hang out before Hebrew School (3:45pm 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!
  • There are also opportunities to do a variety of other tasks on Sunday mornings or Wednesday afternoons, including answering phones, taking pictures, helping in the office, working with technology, and more. Let us know if you are interested in different tasks other than just being in the classroom.
  • Monetary compensation for each working day that a student signs in. Compensation is based on grade level, with higher compensation granted for seniority.
