JPB alumni return as junior counselors
This summer, JPB welcomed back five alums to serve as junior counselors in our peacebuilding and leadership programs for youth and adults. Consisting of Jewish, Christian and Muslim triads and led by Program Assistant Alexia Koch, the two junior counselor teams modeled interfaith cooperation and professionalism during each program.
The balance of religious and cultural diversity made for an effective learning environment of mutual support and personal development for these junior counselors. From leading participants in group activities to providing crucial program support for JPB staff, these teens found themselves empowered by the opportunity to hone their leadership skills and commitment to peace.
