CJP’s PresenTense Boston Fellowship received many outstanding applications from young Jewish innovators looking to implement big ideas throughout the Greater Boston Jewish community and beyond. We were impressed by all of the creativity and passion so many intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs displayed, and are thrilled to introduce to you now… CJP’s 2011 PresenTense Boston Fellows!

Feeling inspired? Do you have a deep professional experience that you are willing to share with these Boston Fellows? If so, volunteer as one of CJP’s PresenTense Boston Fellowship Mentors!
 
We’re looking for experienced community leaders to:
• Work one-on-one to mentor a Fellow and provide high-level strategy and overall guidance and feedback
• Host office hours as a Subject Matter Expert to coach Fellows on a specific skill in fields such as law, finance, marketing and accounting
• If you have started your own venture, teach one of six Case Study sessions to share your story and lessons learned along the way
