Special opportunity for tweens to meet with Harvard Kennedy School Wexner Israel Fellows! Please join us for a workshop with Hagay, a lieutenant colonel in the IDF and his wife Michal, an Israeli teacher- to identify your own potential and clarify what’s most important to you in life. Learn from the amazing personal story of Hagay and Michal how to use all the wonderful talents each and every tween has to move forward and achieve personal, social and communal success.
Wexner Fellows are outstanding Israeli government and public service professionals, pursuing a one-year mid-career master's degree in Public Administration from Harvard Kennedy School. The Vilna welcomes everyone aged 9 through 15 to join us in a private home downtown for a pizza lunch and conversation with a Fellow. Your child(ren) will get to make connections with each other and engage with a leader in Israeli society, here for the year through the Harvard Kennedy School. Drop off encouraged.
