Pathfinders: Politics Internship

Sharon Grossman, a Junior at Yeshivah of Flatbush

      Sharon Grossman, a Junior in our Yeshivah, signed up through our Pathfinders Program to pursue her interests in politics and journalism. This enabled her to work as an intern on the Republican campaign with Ari Zoldan, CEO of Quantum Networks. Recently, she has been working with a credentialed news agency to report about the New Hampshire Primary, where she was fortunate enough to meet some of the presidential candidates. Sharon is truly gaining insights into the world of politics, media and journalism by taking part in the real world experiences that our Pathfinders Program has to offer.

      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.
