One of the things that makes NFTY unique is that our movement is driven by teens. Teen leaders work in partnership with our adult leadership to develop, implement and evaluate every aspect of our organization, whether it's a program, event, or administrative policy. Once your connected with us, there are a plethora of opportunities for you to grow as a teen, Reform Jew and leader.
If you're ready to take the next step, please take a look at the opportunities below, or you can also be in touch with any of our current teen leaders. Based on your interest, we'll find the right place for you to take your excitement for NFTY to the next level.
Currently we are mainly recruiting people to be on our Fall Kallah planning committees. Please look at the description of the committees below, and then you'll find the sign up form at the bottom of this page!
Fall & Spring Kallah Planning Committees
This year, anyone from the region is invited to step up and help plan our two largest events - Fall and Spring Kallot. If you join a committee, you will work for approximately 2 months leading up to the Kallah. Be prepared to commit to meeting weekly for those 2 months, as well as doing work in between meetings. If you are planning Fall Kallah, some planning will take place during the summer. If you are at Camp Coleman or Kutz Camp, we will make sure you can participate in the planning meetings during the summer. If you're at another camp or on a trip and will not have access to email or phone, please wait and volunteer for Spring Kallah instead.
Description of Committees:
Welcoming Committee: Prepares welcome bags/table & nametags, makes signs for the weekend, designs t-shirt, plans mixers, registers and greets kallah participants when they arrive.
Religious and Cultural Committee: Responsible for all services and possibly for a Torah study program on Saturday morning. Services should be developed within the theme of the kallah.
Programming / Social Action Committee: Develops all theme-based “educational” and social action programs for the weekend (excluding Torah Study).
Social Committee: Plans Saturday night social program and any other social events over the course of the weekend (i.e. mandatory optional, etc.).
