Madrichim Team 2023-2024/5784
Our Madrichim Team (“M-Team” for short) is essential to the success of our Torah Center program. Madrichim help in the classroom in a number of ways: assisting with teaching, creating and leading games and activities, leading small groups, working one on one with students and more. The students who are a part of the M-Team help our teachers and the education staff to make the Torah Center experience a great one.
Being a madrich or madricha is a serious thing. We depend on you to show up and to do the tasks that have been assigned to you. It is truly a commitment on your part to join the Torah Center/Madrichim Team; you are expected to uphold that commitment throughout the year.
Getting Started – Who may apply

- Students entering grades 10, 11 or 12 in the fall of 2023 may apply to work as a madrich or madricha in the Torah Center. A limited number of paid positions are available. Volunteers are always welcome; community service hours will be granted if requested.
