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. 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.

2019 Tribe 12 Fellowship Applications are open through Nov 25th!


“Thank you so very much Tribe 12 Fellowship for your constant support over the years.”


Jonathan Wetstein, Parkside’s Roots to Market
2015 Fellow
