The Machon Summer Leadership Institute at URJ Eisner and Crane Lake Camps is a summer-long intensive values-based leadership development internship for rising high school seniors. It is designed for hardworking individuals looking to challenge themselves and actively engage in their own growth within a Jewish context throughout the summer and school-year. Participants explore what it means to become productive and successful staff members of the camp community, deepen their Jewish identity, and gain valuable skills as Jewish leaders. The program offers participants a meaningful opportunity for authentic growth while adding depth to their resumes and completing community service hours.
The Machon Summer Leadership Institute is a core element of the year-round youth engagement efforts of the URJ and the Northeast Teen Collective, which a teen leadership program focused on peer leadership and social entrepreneurism.
