Applications Now Available for Second Cohort of NAGID 360!

NAGID 360°, the leadership institute of the Charleston Jewish community, is currently accepting applications for its second cohort, to run January - June 2017. In this dynamic group experience, local young Jewish professionals participate in a team project that will make a direct impact on Jewish Charleston, learning through experience the skills required to become a creative community leader.

Eligible candidates are young professionals (30's and 40's) seeking opportunities to grow their leadership, business and Jewish communal knowledge and skills, while meeting like-minded people and having fun! But that's not all. Participation in this cohort also means joining an elite network of mentors and peers, gaining access to VIP events and receiving subsidies for conventions and trips around the world and in Israel.

Jen Schager was one of 14 participants in the inaugural cohort. When asked about her NAGID 360 experience, she said, "I truly enjoyed the NAGID 360 experience. I think the program is a tremendous enhancement to our community. I gained a lot of knowledge and information about the resources here in Charleston as well as how this community is advancing and growing. I also met some amazing people and made some wonderful friends. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of this group!"

Anyone who is interested in learning more can speak with program alumni at a "Taste of NAGID 360 Meet and Greet" on November 29th.  Jonathan Zucker, President, The InterTech Group, will participate in an open conversation about young leadership with Abby Pearson, President, Call Experts and NAGID 360 alumna. The conversation is free and open to all eligible candidates for NAGID 360. For more information about this program, contact
