MVP Monday: Get SMART!

Every good youth group event started with a goal. Whether this goal was numerical or experiential, it was a goal nonetheless. Throughout today’s post, you will learn my personal favorite way of goal setting and how to put a plan into action. Something I learned during my year as TYG MVP was how to create a “SMART Goal”. My TYG Advisor really believed how important it was to have defined goals, rather than just a goal statement.

Finally, the end to a long but rewarding process: the fifth month to creating your working TYG. During this month, you’ll find that it’s important to begin adding more educational aspects to your programs, and to make sure that two people co-chair the event planning process.

NFTY-RCVP: A Reflection and a Thank-You to NFTY Northeast

The event was wonderful. The board did a great job, I loved being able to meet the participants, whether it was one new songleader from a recently disengaged youth group, AISH, the two boys from Concord, NH, or the well-known Presidents of larger TYGs.

NFTY-PAR: Realizing What a Freshmen Means in the Eyes of a NFTYite

29 April 2014

None of the freshmen who attended Spring Kallah had any idea what to expect. Seniors will be leaving PAR, and in the eyes of NFTY, freshmen become sophomores. After Spring it became apparent to me that the event is all about reflecting on what NFTY means to you and emphasizing generational leadership.

NFTY-PAR: Being a Role Model is a Life Changing Experience

29 April 2014

Growing up in PAR, I wanted to become a role model for people younger than me just like the people older were for me. And I was always very nervous that I didn't leave that legacy that I wanted to within the region. But being engaged in PAR has helped me realize what a true role model is and means.

NFTY-PAR: My Final Event…Spring Kallah

23 April 2014

When I arrived at Elections, I greeted everyone and made sure everyone running was calm and relaxed. Honestly, I probably give my friends running more attention, but I made sure I wished all thirteen candidates good luck.

Binah: Connecting with Judaism & NFTY

17 April 2014

For myself, an avid NFTYite and Jewish camper, going to NFTY events and various other Jewish events throughout the year is something I do without thinking about it much. Other events, though, seemed riskier.
