The Hornstein Program is unique in its integrated, academic structure with program highlights that include study seminars in Israel, New York City and/or Washington, D.C., fieldwork opportunities, co-curriculars for meaningful student skills-building, career placement assistance and a plethora of networking opportunities within a strong and committed Jewish community.
“For me, our Team Consulting Project (TCP) at the end of Hornstein/Heller was the learning experience that I continue to reference. Our team was faced with the question "Should Ramah DC invest in a new property for their ever expanding day camp?" Through my research for that project, I learned how to do a demographic study, how to consult with an organization to make decisions that are authentic and appropriate to their brand, and how to work together as a team to find a data-based solution. In my current role as Director of Youth and Teen Engagement at the Shames JCC on the Hudson, I have used similar skills to grow our camp brand in authentic, relational, data-based ways, and have been able to work as a consultant to improve our after-school program towards excellence in the field.”
