Youth Professional Network

Jewish Youth Professionals

If you are a Jewish Youth Professional looking to network and collaborate with other Jewish Youth professionals in South Florida, you should consider joining CAJE’s Youth Professional Network (YPN).

What is the Youth Professional Network (YPN)?

YPN is a group made up of representatives from all different Jewish Youth Groups and Organizations, Two-four times over the course of the year, this group will gather to share ideas and best practices from the field. Our hope is to create a space where we can contribute, use our combined experiences, and become a hub for strengthening teens’ Jewish experiences.

Each meet up will include an educational component where youth professionals will be introduced to resources to bring back and use with teens. Youth Professionals will also have the opportunity to network with other youth professionals from across Miami-Dade County.

Attendees include, but are not limited to, representatives from the following youth organizations: AMHSI, BBYO, Diller Teen Fellows, JSU, MOTL, NCSY, USY, Young Judea, Hillel HS, Hebrew Academy HS, and local synagogue Teen Youth Advisors.

If you can think of anyone who is not on this list and should be included, please let us know so we can invite them to join us.

For more information about the Youth Professional Network contact the CAJE Teen Market 305-576-4030 ext. 147.
