Prizmah’s School Counselor Cohort, now in its 5th year, provides a collaborative and supportive professional development experience for school counselors in Jewish day schools and yeshivas.

During nine months of synchronous and asynchronous learning and network building, you will gain the practical tools, research, and knowledge you need to thrive as you support students, faculty, and families, and as you lead the integration of all areas of mental health and wellness in schools. With facilitation from Prizmah experts and presentations from leading researchers and practitioners in the field of mental health, you will have the opportunity to workshop, collaborate, and discuss challenges and leading practices.
