The ConnectGens Fellowship has been an amazing experience! From the intimate coaching and mentorship to the group exercises, the Fellowship has enabled me to look beyond my initial goals. With over 3,000 subscribers and weekly users, Gather the Jews (GTJ) and has been growing exponentially within the DC community. Throughout the program, I have met with coaches, mentors, entrepreneurs and many other great leaders in the Jewish community. All of these interactions have been very helpful to learn the business models and marketing techniques that have helped launch successful projects.
Although GTJ has over two years experience, we have had the pleasure to learn from all the other group projects and ventures. Most recently GTJ just held a Happy Hour with over 200 people who attended, many of whom have been leaders that have been publically recognized by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the DC Jewish community. (click here to see pics) It is this support and encouragement that has helped GTJ continue to move forward.
As GTJ continues forward with its mission to Gather the Jews and provide the most comprehensive news and information for all young adult Jewish life, we look forward to enhancing Jewish life in dozens of other communities throughout the US.
ConnectGens has not only helped me connect better with my own ideas, but also with the leaders of the community, so that I may better serve the Jewish community in DC and nationally!
