COMMUNITY PARENT CHATS
The LAJTI Focus on Teen Wellness is excited to introduce a new program under our Focus on Teen Wellness. The Community Parent Chats (CPC) program is organizing micro-communities for parents of teens in different neighborhoods across Los Angeles, focusing on teen wellness.
These intimate communities will meet several times over the course of the academic year in a host family’s home for meaningful discussion. Each group will be initially supported by a trained facilitator who will provide relevant resources (e.g., articles, videos, Jewish texts, etc.), and offer meaningful discussion questions designed to spark spirited dialogue, sharing and create community. We look forward to these groups creating connections and community, along with meaningful Jewish learning moments!
Please contact us at LAJTI@JewishLA.org to learn about a micro-community near you.
WELLNESS PARENT WORKSHOPS
Being a teenager isn’t easy. Being a parent isn’t easy. Being part of a supportive community to help navigate those challenges? This makes everything a bit easier.
LAJTI has made teen wellness a priority by curating meaningful workshops for parents throughout Los Angeles. We engage in conversations with Jewish educators, spiritual leaders, and teens themselves to find out which topics are most important to address. From internet safety, to mindfulness and building self-esteem, these workshops help parents and teens communicate, and tackle these issues together.
We invite you to attend one of the many teen wellness workshops we offer. You’ll hear from professionals on issues relating to the emotional, social, spiritual, and physical well-being of today’s teens in LA. To find out about future workshops, please email us at the address below.
UPCOMING PARENT WORKSHOP
The advent of smartphones, apps, and social media have made the turbulent teenage years even more challenging for parents and their kids. As parents, we are often searching for help to navigate the unique stressors our high-tech world has introduced to teens. Join us for a FREE parent workshop with Digital Media Wellness Educator Julia Storm, MA and Founder of ReConnect, to learn simple research-based tips to support teens in the digital age. Workshops run from 7:00 – 9:00 P.M. on January 22nd at Adat Ari El, on January 28th at Beth Jacob Congregation and on January 30th at Temple Ramat Zion. RSVP today and learn more.
