Katie works with J-Teen’s youth leaders and participants to create and run local community service projects and develop their leadership skills. Katie has been involved in Jewish Education for over 10 years, at literally every stage - from teaching in a bilingual preschool in Jerusalem, to recruiting high school and college students to study abroad at the Hebrew University. Working at Camp Havaya, Katie had the opportunity to work closely with high school seniors while running the CIT leadership program.
