Imagine being part of a program that enables you to earn money, give back to your community, meet other teens from around Boston and learn about yourself! How do we do all this?


The Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Boston’s TeenAde program offers you seminars and support for your placement as an aide in a congregational or community school. You may work individually or in small groups with students with special learning needs or in classrooms that include students with learning difficulties. The seminars are interactive, fun, and educational. You learn about special needs, Jewish views on special needs and teaching strategies. There is time to discuss, brainstorm and problem solve with your peers and the staff about the work you are doing in the classroom.

2007-08 marks the sixth year of TeenAde and it’s been well received at national conferences. In fact, similar programs have begun in Philadelphia and in Manhattan at the JCC, based on the success of TeenAde. What do people say about this program?

I have become close friends with the other aides. We are all like family. I would have never had the chance to meet all these amazing people had I not become a TeenAde.

I find it amazing that teenagers in today’s world are willing to give of themselves. They thank me for doing something when they give so much of themselves. - Education Director
