LEARNINGS

SHARING OUTCOMES

The Funder Collaborative is committed to learning from ongoing qualitative and quantitative research to both inform program design, and uncover and document the most promising practices.  We believe the insights gleaned can have wide-ranging implications for any community engaged in Jewish teen education and engagement work.  We publish and share our Research, Case Studies and Evaluations here.

Groundbreaking Research
One of the Collaborative’s significant early contributions to the field was to identify new outcomes that positively affect the lives of Jewish teens. This articulation led to a new paradigm for Jewish teen education, moving beyond thinking about teens as recipients of Jewish learning experiences and framing an overarching question: How might we understand and engage the teen as a whole person, and how can Judaism enrich and deeply influence his or her whole life?

To begin to answer this question, we developed common goals that allow Funder Collaborative members to aggregate and analyze evaluation findings. Two concurrent efforts are underway to understand the progress, achievements and challenges of the community-based initiatives. Local evaluators study regional initiatives, and a Cross-Community Evaluation aggregates and analyzes key learnings.

We invite you to explore these reports and circulate these among your networks.
