Madrichim Spotlight: Alexa, Class of 2024
BZ Madrichim (Student Ambassador) Club
By the time our students reach 7th and 8th grade, they’ve participated in numerous significant and unique milestones paired with essential knowledge, skills and habits to succeed in high school and beyond. For families of prospective students, there is no one better than a current student to speak to those experiences.
Over the years, we've learned that our eldest students are key influencers in a prospective or new student’s transition to Bernard Zell. So for the 2022-23 school year, we introduced our first student ambassador club—The BZ Madrichim (ambassadors). We were delighted to receive over 50+ applications that included thoughtful and earnest responses.
What exactly does a student ambassador do at Bernard Zell? The role of a Madrich (ambassador) is to provide guidance to prospective families at school events, be advocates for the school in the community and most importantly—acquire a skill set along the way that will help them grow into future leaders of the Jewish community and beyond!
