What is Young and Teen Limmud?
Young and Teen Limmud is the Limmud programme for children and teenagers. Parents drop off their children at Young and Teen Limmud (YTL) in the morning and pick them up in the late afternoon. During the day, the children and teens enjoy sessions run by Limmud presenters on a variety of topics, take part in crafts, music, dance and drama sessions run by their madrichim (leaders), as well as engaging in volunteering and community building activities.
Young and Teen Limmud is run entirely by volunteer madrichim from a range of diverse backgrounds, who are essential in making YTL a fantastic experience for all of its participants.
What is a Madrich/a?
A madrich/a is a youth leader. Our young programme runs for children aged 4 – 11 (school years Reception – year 6) and our teen programme runs from 12 – 18 (year 7+).
Madrichim are there to ensure the safety and well being of children and teens at Limmud Festival. Part of the role is to be help presenters with their sessions and help facilitate if needed. The other part is running your own sessions and these can be about anything from politics to the environment to creative arts. If you enjoy working with children, can work well in a team and have some previous youth leading experience, this might be the ideal way for you to experience Limmud Festival. Previous experience is ideal but not essential, as we provide training for all of our madrichim.
