Pathfinders: Exploring the Performing Arts

      Michael Zalta, a Freshman in our Yeshivah, always had a passion for the performing arts. Through our Pathfinders Program he was able to pursue his interests to the fullest extent. With the help of our Pathfinders counselors, Michael applied for a performing role in the Brooklyn Children's Theatre in Park Slope. We are proud to say that Michael was accepted into the program. In just three weeks, he will be cutting a CD for iTunes and performing in an original play with BCT written by Scott Davis. Michael is truly exploring what the performing arts has to offer through this wonderful opportunity.

      Beginning in 9th grade, the Pathfinders counselors work with each student to discuss their interests and develop their goals. Students are then given a wide range of opportunities of places where they can volunteer, intern and explore their unique academic pursuits and career ideas. Through the Yeshivah of Flatbush Pathfinders Program, we encourage our students to discover and expand their special talents and abilities and explore career options for the future. Whether a student is actively engaged during the school year or in the summer, we are confident that each Yeshivah of Flatbush student will find a path to success.
