Flatbush Students Intern For A Fashion Designer

This past Friday, Frieda Zeitoune, and Renee Waingort and I went to New York City to intern for a famous fashion company, Margit David, created and owned by Jacqueline Gelb (HS '03). This was made possible through thte Yeshivah of Flatbush Pathfinders Program. While we were there we watched a bride and her sister get fitted for their wedding on Sunday. We also bought materials that were needed to put on the finishing touches on the dress. Renee was even able to cut some lace that was later sewed on to the bride's sister's dress. We learned a lot about the fashion industry and how much work goes into making one dress. We had a great time and hope we can experience this again. ~Emily Waingort

Yeshivah of Flatbush Joel Braverman High School Pathfinders Program: 
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.
