Zoom Out: Looking Beyond
Feedback form is now closed.
Fellows will begin to see how Camp has helped them become Jewish educators and leaders, and to help them understand how they can take those experiences into their communities beyond camp. They should feel empowered to take the skills and tools they’ve garnered at Cornerstone to create opportunities for their peers. They will also learn about the Cornerstone Alumni Micro-Grant opportunity.
