South Toronto Programming
As rabbinic staff living in the South Toronto area of the city, they will serve as the primary outreach staff for the South Toronto chapter of NCSY. Programming will include running clubs in various public-school settings, Learning program programs, shabbaton participation and chavrusa learning.

Alumni Scholars and Learn and Earn Programs
The Alumni Scholars Program is a weekly learning programs that include a stipend for Alumni. Sessions usually run for 20 weeks. The program is very similar to the popular Maimonides Campus program. A similar program that is run for high school teens is the Learn and Earn program. This includes weekly learning with small groups of students in central locations.
An important part of the position is developing individual relationships with alumni and teens. This includes chavrusah learning and regular meetings to discuss their personal growth.
To help build a community of alumni, consistent social events is critical. A main focus of this should include Holiday programming. The same is true for teens in the South area of the city. Creating regular social opportunities for them is an important aspect of the position.
Regular shabbat meal hosting is critical to the growth of alumni and teens. The couple’s home will serve as a base for operations with a constant flow of students coming through their home, primarily for shabbat meals.
NCSY will look to send Alumni to Israel every summer with the couple on trips either provided by NCSY or in partnership with other outreach organizations.

Participation on these trips is something that can explored for this position.
One of the most impactful programs that NCSY runs are shabbatons at various points throughout the year. A key component of this position is the recruitment and participation on these conventions to leverage them as relationship building opportunities with one’s students.
