Tribe 12 Fellowship

Explore Your Idea 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-May) 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. Each Fellow is matched with a coach and Tribe 12 Fellowship alumnus, both of whom guide them through the process.

Launch Night is May 12th!
