The culmination of the Long Island, NY- French Hill Jerusalem and Lamnrtoh Hakol, Buenos Aires Tri Center project took place during a week-long two track seminar for the 27 teens who participated in the program and their parents. A recent post-program survey of participants from all three countries demonstrates that the Tri-Center model is continuing to have a very positive impact on the Jewish identities and actions of participants after formal project activities ended. Youth professionals and the Executive Directors from all three countries reported that they continued to remain in close contacts with each other. The youth director from Buenos Aires reported that “I have personally built up a very strong relationship, both personal and professional, with both coordinators: Yael and Kelly. We stay in touch quite often and share experiences of projects and personal life matters.”
