Consultancy on Youth Engagement

The Campaign for Youth Engagement recently received a grant from the Jim Joseph Foundation to develop a strategic plan for expanding our reach to our Jewish youth and upgrading the centrality of youth engagement in our system. We have hired the consulting partnership of BTW informing change and the Center for Leadership Initiatives (CLI) to coordinate these efforts. 

The Learning phase of the consultancy includes data collection (both internal and external documents that cover a wide range of topics including: history of youth engagement, Israel, camping, NFTY, URJ-congregational relationship, day schools, and youth professional training), focus groups, and interviews.

As part of the Consultancy we invited individuals from across the Reform movement and beyond to serve as Advisors to the process. The Advisors have served as a sounding board to the consulting group, offering feedback via email to organizational and programmatic ideas being explored for the URJ's future.  At the end of May, the Advisors will gather at regional meetings to reflect on a series of scenarios and strategic options developed in the process.

We expect our final strategic planning documents at the end of the summer.
