First day on site: June 6

Monday evening electives: Past topics include a resume workshop, a career networking night at UJA-Federation of New York, and a movie night in Bryant Park.


Throughout CLIP we were challenged to make an impact. We were challenged to learn not only about our community and our peers, but to learn about ourselves. In college, it is very common to feel lost. And before CLIP, I was at a point in my life full of uncertainty. But through my work experience, numerous Friday seminars, Monday night learning sessions, and a weekend Shabbaton leading me to conversations and friendships, I have found my worth, my ability professionally, and a strong drive to return back to New York and work alongside Jewish professionals post graduation
