Recently, I traveled to Pittsburgh to present a workshop for the Jewish Federation’s Board of Delegates. Our evening together focused on developing a basic outreach skill set, with a particular focus on reaching out to young adults—single, partnered, and with children. The session guided participants through key ingredients to a successful outreach program, including identifying and lowering barriers to participation, making our organizations more welcoming, utilizing inclusive language, and strategic marketing (for more information on outreach “best practices,” check out this resource page on our JOPLIN site). The evening ended with folks brainstorming new collaborative programs to bring to the community. I can’t wait to see where they go next!
