The Ma’yan Research Training Internship (RTI) was created to generate new knowledge about the lives of Jewish teen girls, and to promote girls’ leadership within and beyond the Jewish community.
In partnership with their Ma’yan advisors, Research Training Interns create and execute an original research study: conducting background research, creating original instruments, recruiting participants, collecting data, and analyzing the results. Interns then have the opportunity to present their findings to an audience of Jewish communal professionals, funders, and other interested adults, using their knowledge to advocate for change.
After five years and three successful cohorts of the Research Training Internship, Ma’yan is seeking partner organizations interested in bringing this unique program to their communities. The pilot of the expanded Research Training Internship establishes partnerships between Ma’yan and Jewish organizations in other cities interested in adding the RTI program to their repertoire. As RTI pilot partners, these organizations will receive technical and financial support to initiate a RTI cohort in their city, participate in a national training for RTI staff, and attend a conference for RTI participants.
