Working as a Madrich/Madricha, teens can choose between pay and community service hours. While
madrichim assist teachers in classroom tasks, their responsibilities go beyond the administrative duties suggested by the term “teachers’ assistant.” As madrichim, they guide younger students toward a positive Jewish journey experience by demonstrating their involvement, their skills at collaboration, and their initiative.
