More about Summer Excelerator/Rewired

The Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU runs two summer programs for teens - Summer Excelerator and Rewired. 

Summer Excelerator is a six-week internship program. Teens intern Tuesdays through Thursdays and meet with the cohort on Mondays and Fridays for professional, leadership, and Jewish identity development. The summer begins with a two day Orientation, culminates in a cohort-led and created Shabbaton, and celebrates the summer with a Closing Ceremony open to parents, supervisors, and Bronfman Center stakeholders. Summer Excelerator completed its first summer program in 2019 and successfully transitioned the program to a virtual format for summer 2020 and 2021. For summer 2022, we anticipate working with 20 interns and returning to an in-person format. 

Rewired is a six-week professional, leadership, and Jewish identity development program. Weekly, participants complete asynchronous and virtual learning modules that cover a range of topics, including managing up & design thinking. They also receive coaching from Bronfman Center staff. We anticipate working with 40 teens.
