Impact Fellowship:

Same dates as 8-Week Mini-Mester

 Born from a rich tradition of fostering leadership, the AMHSI Impact Fellowship prepares a select group of high school students to take their place as future Jewish changemakers. When their study abroad is complete, fellows return home as ambassadors for Israel and the Jewish people, armed with the necessary tools to conduct recruitment events, promote the school and all that it stands for, and ready to embark on the next stage of life: college. Limited spots available for October and December sessions.
