Calling all parents of older teens!
JumpSpark, Atlanta’s Jewish teen initiative, wants to help you support your children through the transition from high school to college, gap year, and beyond. On March 1st from 7 – 9 pm at The Weber School, parents will have the opportunity to participate in breakout sessions led by experts in the field of emotional well-being, affording college, Jewish engagement, and the benefits of taking a gap year in Israel. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with veteran college parents who can help guide you through this transition. You’ll leave with resources that will support you and your student. This event is in partnership with Hillels of Georgia and JF&CS Atlanta.
