Jewish Coaching Project

With the support of the UJA-Federation of New York, FJC piloted Jewish Coaching Project in the winter of 2015. The project had engaged 4 JCC day camps and has been providing Jewish consulting services to teams of senior professionals from the participating camps for the last 18 months. The project has engaged a team of coaches who together with FJC professionals have been developing a Jewish consulting methodology that will be used as FJC expands its work with day camps. The grant has been renewed to include an additional 5 day camps.

Jewish Coaching Project has set out to:

  • Develop a shared language of excellence and execution of experiential Jewish education at camp
  • Develop a shared language of assessment to measure Jewish outcomes for campers and staff
  • Concretize a methodology of change for and within the field.
  • Develop a repository of best practices, models, and educational resources that can be disseminated and utilized broadly among diverse camps through the FJC Knowledge Center.
