Engagement Collaborative

Engagement Collaborative: Empowering Community Builders of Tomorrow

Join Tribe 12 this spring for our first-ever cohort experience centered around building relationships and community!

At Tribe 12, we strongly believe that developing one’s Jewish identity and engaging in Jewish life must be natural, self learned, and affirmed by trusted peer networks. The core foundation of this experience is community, which is rooted in the forming of meaningful relationships. Learn more about the philosophy behind this cohort on our blog!

Our Engagement Collaborative is for anyone looking to connect with an intimate group of peers while learning the tools of leadership and relational engagement. This cohort will meet mostly on Tuesdays and begin with 3 sessions on relational engagement, followed by a weekend-long community building retreat. Participants will then have the opportunity to choose a specialty track of community building or matchmaking for an additional 3 sessions, ending with a culminating experience at Tribe 12’s Fellowship Launch Night on May 9th. Sessions will be led by Tribe 12 staff and guest experts.

Session dates (All session will be on Tuesday’s from 6:30-8:30 PM in Center City unless otherwise noted)

– 2 opening sessions on relational engagement: February 21st, 28th
– Community Building Retreat: March 10th – 12th (required)
– 3 sessions with a specialty track: March 14th, 21st, April 22nd
– There will be one more activity (to be announced) between March 21st and April 22nd
– Culminating element at Launch Night: May 9th

We aim to empower individuals with the skills and confidence to act as leaders, guides and connectors to help other individuals find their place in the community and the world, all the while cultivating their own.

All sessions will include dinner. The cost for this program and the retreat are $100 (this covers your dinners during each cohort session as well as a shared room at the retreat. Private room or double will cost more).

You do not need to decide in advance which specialty track you would like to choose, but if you do know please tell us upon registering. If you have any questions please reach out to Megan@tribe12.org to learn more!


Tribe 12 connects people in their 20s/30s to Jewish life and community in Philadelphia today so they will choose to stay connected tomorrow. We welcome people who identify as Jewish, whose partner is Jewish, or who are exploring Judaism. Tribe 12 seeks to include all individuals regardless of gender or identity expression, religious history and practice, health and disability whether visible or invisible, and financial circumstances. For questions, to request accommodations, or just to say hi, reach out to yo@tribe12.org.
