RTI (Research Training Internship) Application Due Date

Join the RTI teen research team, get paid, and make a serious contribution to the Jewish community!

The Jewish Federation of Chicago’s Research Training Internship (RTI), a selective 10-month paid internship where high-school-aged girls like you will advise The Jewish Federation’s work from your unique perspectives. The Jewish Federation of Chicago is interested in learning about the messages Jewish teen girls receive—from popular culture, from parents and other adults, from the Jewish community, from schools, even from peers—about who they are supposed to be and to become. RTI is hosted by the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago in partnership with Ma'yan and the Beck Research Initiative for Women, Gender, and Community.

NFTY CAR Kickoff

NFTY is a community for Reform Jewish high school students. Participants build friendships, lifelong Reform Jewish identities, and leadership skills through community building, worship, social action, and experiential youth-led Jewish educational programming.

All programs, from educational to social, provide an environment for teens to interact in a positive environment. The focus of a NFTY weekend retreat is often based on an educational theme such as leadership, b'tzelem Elohim (in the image of God), tikkun olam (repairing the word), the Prophets and much more. Throughout the weekend there will be three or four programs that center around these themes. Unlike a traditional learning setting, these informal educational programs combine the needs of many different learning styles through activities such as creative games, skits, art projects, and deep discussions which last far beyond the allotted time of the programs.
