PUENTES Leadership & Resiliency Fellowship Application
Hola! Thank you for your interest in the PUENTES Leadership and Resiliency Fellowship.

Our premier PUENTES program provides participants with the opportunity to engage in a four-month leadership and resiliency development program with other Latin-Jews. In this experience, we utilize a wide range of modalities to explore intersectionality, deconstruct internalized oppression, reflect on our resiliency, reimagine Jewish leadership, and celebrate the bridges we are between many cultures.


The goals of this fellowship are to empower participants to:

  1. Examine their individual leadership philosophy, 
  2. Sharpen their analysis of intersectionality,
  3. Learn from Jewish and Latino/x educators and narratives, 
  4. Develop tools for resiliency, and 
  5. Strengthen ties with other Latin-Jewish leaders.


As a result of participating in this fellowship, participants will gain: 

  1. Access to the PUENTES alumni network of Latin-Jewish change-makers,
  2. Insight on a wide range of multicultural experiences from the Jewish and Latin communities, 
  3. An understanding of how Jewish and Latin cultures are complementary to one another and can strengthen the way we lead, 
  4. Tools to more confidently and passionately emerge as holistic community leaders with a strength for bridge-building, and
  5. Connections to local leadership opportunities. 


  1. The 2023 cohort will gather for an in-person, opening and closing retreat, and will include eight virtual gatherings.
  2. The 2023 opening retreat will take place from February 3-5, 2023. 
  3. The 2023 closing retreat will take place from May 4-7, 2023. 
  4. Virtual Workshops will take place from  3:00-5:00pm PT/ 6:00-8:00pm ET on on Wednesdays January 18, February 1 & 15, March 1, 15 & 29, and on Mondays April 10 & 24.

Thanks to the generosity of our funders, the contribution for this experience is a sliding scale $360-$720 based on your financial situation. In addition, there will be a stipend provided for travel to and from the retreat according to location and distance. In the application there will be a space to share your contribution ability.  For any questions about this or to explore a scholarship, email us at community@jewtina.org.
