Youth can be motivated to learn and develop their educational and social skills when given the proper framework; one which speaks their language in a nonjudgmental setting. By utilizing music and arts, we allow students to express themselves in a safe environment and channel their own energy in a creative and positive way.
In the academic year of 2011-2012, we are working with 18 schools, providing workshops, and significant follow up to ensure that goals are met. The workshops are held five to seven times a year, revolving around Jewish holidays, reaching approximately 180 students each day over the course of several days.
A.M.I. offers training seminars for teachers to help them understand the importance of integrating music as an education tool as well as how to teach Judaism through the arts. With our programs for educators, they learn how to enhance and integrate Jewish study content into their school, creating a stronger and more vibrant atmosphere for Jewish pride.
