A pluralistic, cutting-edge, living Jewish Laboratory. 

Have a blast, build skills and get inspired. 

  • A collaboration supported by the Boulder Jewish Community that positions itself as a formative step in an 8th graders journey.

  • Accessible opportunity designed for all Jewish backgrounds that requires less commitment than traditional education models.

  • Dynamic engagement through immersive experiences, relationship building, critical thinking, and a personalized approach focused on the psycho-social and identity development of participants as they prepare to enter High School.  

  • Weekly gatherings will be sequenced with team activities, content and relevant skill building, interactive workshops, and reflective processing.

  • Explore topics ranging from social dynamics, cooking/gardening, time management, Israel narratives, and gender/sexuality.  

  • Facilitation is focused on the individual participants needs and constructed by BJTI staff who are experienced in a variety of settings, engagement methodologies and youth work.  This program also integrates local clergy, community leaders and field professionals in a space that allows ongoing coaching and mentorship.  

  • Our participants will gain a larger peer group, more confidence in themselves, and are better prepared to make healthy, informed decisions.

  • Exposure to the large number of Jewish “doors” teens can explore as they NaviG8 their place in our tribe, Boulder’s community and the world.

  • We are building more robust young adults, global citizens and modern Jews.
