Why Dreaming Bigger?
Teens are the Jewish people’s greatest asset.
Teen leadership and development is more important today than ever. Dreaming Bigger provides a more consistent, intentional, relevant, and aspirational way to grow and empower teens and those who prepare them to be the leaders of tomorrow.
Our Mission and Vision
The Dreaming Bigger initiative is designed to inspire and empower teens to…
- Broaden their Jewish knowledge
- Identify and deepen their values
- Hone their leadership skills
so that they can make a meaningful difference in the world.
Based on years of research and experience and serving all teens or those that work with them, Dreaming Bigger offers a suite of first-class resources such as a website, book, educators guide, masterclasses, animations, and conversation cards and provides a safe space for teens and those that work with them to engage and interact.
To inspire and empower teens to hone their knowledge, values and skills: to learn, among other things, how to recruit, motivate, persuade, raise money, nurture talent, have difficult conversations and guide those they are leading more effectively.
Dreaming Bigger, a Behrman House publication, contains over 50 chapters written specifically for teenagers on their leadership journeys. It contains the voices of teens and experts, and a variety of activities, recommendations, inner workouts, case studies, Jewish bright spots and food for thought.
Animated shorts share powerful ideas in less than one minute to stimulate thought and discussion on a range of relevant topics.
The conversation cards are a deck of fifty-two cards, containing thought-provoking questions that can be used to explore leadership dilemmas and discuss areas for growth.
Masterclasses showcase personal approaches and advice on a range of leadership topics.
The Educators’ Guide provides those who work with teens teaching tips for how to use the book and over twenty ready-to-run leadership sessions and classes that complement the other resources.
