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 OFFICE MADRICHOL (8:30am-11:30am on Sunday Mornings) We are looking for one madrich/ah to staff the front desk. They will learn how to answer the phones, work with parents, and help students who come into the office.  Overall, they will be one of our friendly, welcoming faces on Sundays! *Note: the pay is slightly higher reflecting the extra hour :)

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!

Hebrew School CLASSROOM MADRICHOL (4:00pm-6:00pm on Wednesday afternoons) Our Hebrew school madrichol often work with students one to one outside of the classroom, and/or teach games/activities in the classroom.

Hebrew School ONLINE MADRICHOL  (4:50 - 5:30pm on Wednesday afternoons) Our online Hebrew school madrichol play an important technological role in their zoom classroom spaces. You do not need Hebrew capabilities to be an online Hebrew madrich. The partnership between teacher and madrich really helps make this virtual experience meaningful for everyone. 

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.

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

Application will open in early summer.
