ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

The Jewish New Teacher Project (JNTP), a division of the New Teacher Center, provides proven educational services to Jewish day schools. JNTP was founded in 2002 in partnership with the AVI CHAI Foundation in response to research that showed that schools struggled with high teacher attrition rates and a lack of resources for in-school professional development. JNTP’s national headquarters are in New York City, with satellite program hubs in Baltimore, Chicago, and Miami. In 2020-2021, JNTP is working with 63 schools, 94 mentors, and 121 new teachers representing the full range of Jewish life in North America today.

GRANT PURPOSE

To support the implementation and growth of a structured mentoring and professional development program for new Jewish Day School teachers in Los Angeles. The program will bolster teacher retention and improve the quality of Jewish Day School education in Los Angeles.

With the generous support offered by The Foundation, Jewish New Teacher Project of New Teacher Center will be able to build on our existing partnerships and grow our LA teacher and administrator coaching programs to impact more students, teachers, and administrators in local Jewish day schools.
