The AVI CHAI Foundation sponsors a structured and proven process for enhancing the quality of your school’s Jewish mission.
The year-long program includes a week of professional development at Harvard Principals’ Center world-famous Summer Institutes for educational leaders – Improving Schools: The Art of Leadership (AOL) or Leadership: An Evolving Vision (LEV); nightly facilitated sessions while in Cambridge, applying the day’s lessons to your change project; and project management throughout the year to support you and help you stay on track.
This program is an amazing opportunity for you to develop your leadership skills and bring improvements to your school. But don’t just take it from us… listen to program participants:
“Throughout my professional life, I have operated always upon the principle that one learns through experience better than sitting in an academic environment absorbing the same ideas. I firmly believed that the more opportunities in which one participates – the more one learns and grows. My summer experience at the Harvard Institute and through the AVI CHAI cohort flipped my appreciation of academic learning on its head. Being engaged and working in small groups in an intensive academic forum inspired me to make critical changes in both my personal and professional lives. My new perspective engendered at last summer’s Harvard Institute subsequently created a renewed energy and positive approach to problem solving and staff development.”
