The Pittsburgh Diller Teen Fellows program is a prestigious 12-month international leadership program that, together with their partnership cohort in Karmiel-Misgav in Israel, partake in:
- Twelve Educational Workshops
- Three Weekend Retreats (Shabbatonim)
- Service and Impact Experiences
Diller Teen Fellows gather on a regular basis to explore their relationships with the program’s pillars and values. They are encouraged to learn and lead as they consider what it means to be Jewish, and part of a diverse, international community. At regular Sunday workshops, participants explore program core values through team-building exercises, hands-on volunteering, dynamic conversations, and Jewish text study.
SHABBATONIM WEEKEND RETREATS
Shabbatonim are weekend retreats which allow participants to dig deeper into prominent issues that arise during their workshops. While participants cultivate relationships with their peers, coordinator, and junior counselors, discussions focus on the six core values: leadership, Jewish identity, Israel, tikkun olam, Pluralism, and Peoplehood.
