Committed to ending gender bias for the next generation, the Hadassah Foundation has provided generous support for the creation and implementation of the 3rd cohort of Project Teen-Seed613.
Project Teen-Seed613 empowers Jewish teen girls to work together to identify challenges in the community and create solutions, whether big or small, that will make a meaningful difference. Fellows will practice innovative problem solving, critical thinking and human-centered design project design, discuss pressing social issues, learn business skills such as marketing, fundraising and budgeting tactics, and create community among peers.
Fellows work in small groups on their impact projects, and are partnered with a mentor – entrepreneurs, activists, and successful professionals – to guide them through the development of their project. Through innovative curriculum, supportive staff, and collaboration, Fellows will explore all aspects relating to business and entrepreneurial success throughout the program.
Fellows will participate in workshops related to issues such as breaking through the gender bias, risk-taking, and overcoming fears and self-doubt. Project Teen-Seed613 Fellows will complete the program having applied their skills learned to develop a socially responsible venture that will positively impact the community, and will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to the community at the program’s Launch Night in May.
Fellows will meet one to two times per month to work within the cohort, with their mentor, and with their small group on their impact projects. Time will also be spent on their projects outside of group sessions.
