The Common Ground Fellowship
What is it?
The Common Ground Fellowship provides professional development for 14 & 15 year olds (or in some cases, rising 9th & 10th graders) across New York City area day camps. Common Ground explores the middah (value) of leadership and how it relates to patience, humility, joy, kindness, and foresight.
Common Ground enables Fellows to significantly grow their skills in childcare, communication, and near-peer management. As Common Ground Fellows, young teens will find a community of peers and colleagues with whom they can exchange ideas and build meaningful relationships.
