This week, members of jteenphilly (a consortium of professionals who work with adolescents in the Jewish community) took some time in their quarterly scheduled meeting to think about what they had to give to their colleagues and what they stood to get from their colleagues.

We weren’t talking about tangible things to exchange, but rather the important intangibles – knowledge, resources, and programs.  It became quickly apparent that everyone had important things to learn and also important things to teach their colleagues.

And that’s collaboration. It’s all about the give and the get.

If you work with this population, get involved! In addition to our April meeting there are a number of professional development opportunities designed with you in mind. Contact Robyn Cohen, for more information.
