In addition to the individual student workbook, Jewish institutions, such as JCCs, community farms, and synagogues, can also host a cohort of bar/bat mitzvah students to design and complete a service-learning project as a group. For cohort sites, JIFA has created The Ark Project Facilitator Guide for a lead educator (e.g. a farmer, educator, or clergy member) to facilitate a unique project that is meaningful to the students, beneficial for animals, and based on community needs.
Get inspired by innovative cohort projects like this one, which launched at Ekar Farm in Denver!
