Overview

The Strong Women Fellowship is an empowering educational cohort providing Jewish teens in Atlanta with unparalleled access to strong women leaders, thinkers and voices shaping the world we live in today.

Each month teen participants meet speakers and engage in relevant learning that speaks to what it means to be a woman in our time. This Fellowship helps young people grapple with the obstacles they face and prepares them to be the leaders they can be today and in the future.

Feminist Actions and Small Group Conversations

In addition to hearing from speakers throughout the year, Fellows will meet in small groups with others in their grade to participate in feminist actions and experiential conversations that will give them a place to feel safe, articulate their deepest concerns, consider the impact of gender on their daily lives, and make a meaningful impact in the world.

Fellows will explore conversation topics such as body image, friendship, relationships, family, competition, and stress. They will also engage in actions including volunteering at a women’s shelter and engaging in social justice causes. Small group conversations are developed in partnership with Moving Traditions, a national leader in community building for teens. These groups will be facilitated by a young professional in the Atlanta Jewish community.

Leadership Opportunities
