Today we got the staff at Birthright Israel NEXT’s Philadelphia office up on their feet and improvising in a really fun afternoon of improvisation exercises designed to help the teambuilding among everyone at this new office .
Birthright Israel is already well-known as the organization which gives young Jewish people an opportunity to visit Israel for free. Birthright Israel NEXT is a part of the Birthright Israel Foundation that works to maintain and grow the connections participants made on those trips when they return to the United States by encouraging people to attend events in major cities and also providing support (in the form of free meals and materials) for Birthright alumni who want to host Shabbat dinners. They’re currently expanding their staff across the country and we hope to work with them again soon!
PHIT has worked with a number of religious and religiously identified cultural groups over the years – including a crew of Catholic bishops, a retreat of protestant priests of different branches, and followers of Shambhala Buddhist teachings. Maybe you’ve got a cultural or religious group that could use some fun teambuilding, would enjoy an afternoon of learning to improvise, or has specific goals for development that applied improvisation could teach in an out-of-the-box way? Reach out and let’s discuss!
