ARK internships empower teens to continue on the path of making Judaism meaningful in their lives, while gathering skills to become leaders in the Jewish community.
ARK interns are assigned to an Adventure Rabbi Kids class and work under the supervision of either Elaine Barenblat or Emily Norman. Interns are an integral part of the ARK community. The students become attached to the teens and the teachers depend on them. Therefore, interns are expected to attend all of the sessions and are responsible for finding a substitute when they cannot attend.
ARK interns support each other as they take on increasingly greater levels of responsibility for themselves and others. The teenage years are tough; ARK internships gives students an oasis, a place where they can shine and help others shine.
Elaine and Emily empower the interns to help lead the group and engage the children. They interact closely with the children, making sure that each child feels safe and included in the Adventure Rabbi Kids experience.
