Explore your business through the lens of your personal values

The Tribe 12 Fellowship is a leadership experience for individuals that are dedicated to personal growth, enriching our communities, and making Judaism their own. Through a curriculum built on the themes of self discovery, philanthropy, emotional intelligence, and entrepreneurship, Fellows will apply the tangible skills they learn to create a capstone project of their own design: a new or existing business, nonprofit, community, or anything in between!

The Fellowship takes place over the course of four months (January-April) and is designed to run concurrently with work or school obligations. The program takes Fellows through a rich curriculum with a particular emphasis on entrepreneurial skills like prototyping, public speaking, financials, goal setting, and environmental scanning. Through the program, each Fellow will work extensively with a personal coach to design a capstone project that they will execute and present at a closing event.

Thank you so very much Tribe 12 Fellowship for your constant support over the years. I hope to ensure that my work continues to affect positive change and make you all proud as Parkside’s Roots to Market enters it’s 4th growing season! – Jonathan Wetstein, 2015 Fellow

“I am always pleased to be involved with the Tribe 12 Fellowship as a mentor or coach. You get the satisfaction of knowing you are helping a young entrepreneur achieve their personal and professional goals while having the opportunity to build your own leadership and management skills. Coaches get to build an enduring career network, gain insights and different perspectives from future members of your profession or community. Being a part of Tribe 12 is a meaningful opportunity to give back to the Jewish community.” — Michael Adler, Managing Partner at the Law Office of Michael E. Adler, Tribe 12 Fellowship Coach
