We are pleased to invite you to participate in a Repair the World/RepairLabs webinar on Thursday, March 17, at 2:00 PM Eastern, where we will be presenting the results of a new study about the impact of the REALITY Israel Experience for Teach For America corps members.

For the past two years, the REALITY Israel Experience has been bringing select Teach For America participants on a 10-day trip to explore Israel from a service and education perspective and connect their secular service work, as teachers, to their personal values and motivations for repairing the world. Has it worked?

Among other promising findings, the REALITY impact study found the program has:

  • Strengthened participants’ commitment to Teach For America’s mission;
  • Strengthened participants’ commitment to social justice; and
  • Strengthened the link between members’ Jewish identity and their passion for service.

During the webinar on Thursday, March 17, at 2:00 PM Eastern, we will explore the study in the context of a conversation about Jewish identity and the factors that drive a passion for service. Joining me on the call will be Adam Simon of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and Michelle Culver from Teach For America. Both organizations were sponsors of the study, along with the Samberg Family Foundation and the Center for Leadership Initiatives.

I think you will find this discussion to be of interest and hope you will join us. To access the webinar please press ‘play’ on the video below.
