Program Success Manager
RootOne at The Jewish Education Project
New York, NY
Your Opportunity for Impact
RootOne is a “Jewish start-up” – an innovative, dynamic initiative that is pro-actively inspiring a generation of teens to be more confident and proud Jews as they enter the next stage of their lives. RootOne, along with its youth serving trip providers, redefine and deepen the typical teen Israel summer trip experience so that its impact is long-lasting. It does so by reducing the cost of participation and by diversifying Israel experiences to make them more accessible to a wider audience of Jewish teens.
We know that an intentionally designed and well-facilitated immersive experience in Israel has the capacity to breathe vitality, passion, and commitment among Jewish teens that could directly impact the future landscape of North American Jewish life. It provides a framework that allows Jewish teens to explore many of the issues that matter most to them as adolescents and as young Jews. Research shows that outside of Jewish day school (which only a small percentage of Jewish teens in North America attend), there is no greater impact on a young person’s Jewish identity formation than an Israel trip with their peers.
An Israel experience increases the likelihood of Jewish teens being more committed to their Jewish community in the long term, maintaining personal relationships with other Jews, and assuming leadership roles in the world. At a time when Jewish voices on campus need to be heard more than ever, the Israel experience has proven to increase the connections of young Jews to their fellow Jews and to greatly enhance their connection to Israel. At scale, this experience can radically transform the trajectory of North American Jewry. Learn more at www.rootone.org and www.jewishedproject.org.
RootOne provides financial support to Trip Providers (Youth Serving Organizations, Jewish Residential Camps, Jewish Federations, and other grantees responsible for organizing top tier Israel experiences for Jewish teens) to expand the number of participants in their Israel travel programs by reducing the program costs for families. Additionally, RootOne provides grants to Trip Providers to elevate Israel experiences, to create the highest quality, safest and most impactful experiences possible, to provide additional infrastructure to recruit and to manage more participants, and to integrate Israeli teens into their trips.
RootOne seeks a full-time, methodical, and strategic Program Success Manager to develop and implement strategic and transformational relationships that will elevate the field of Israel teen travel.
