The Sunflower Bakery Bnei Mitzvah Program is designed around the concept of Tikun Olam – Building a Better World. The purpose of the program is to teach boys and girls preparing to become a bar or bat mitzvah about the role that Sunflower Bakery plays in the community – that of training adults with learning differences in marketable and transferable skills that can lead to employment –and how the Bnei Mitzvah participants can help expand awareness of Sunflower’s mission, provide assistance in the bakery and help create marketing media to ensure Sunflower Bakery continues to be successful in meeting the needs of the community. The Bnei Mitzvah Program is ideal for teens interested in making a difference in our local community and improving the lives of individuals with learning differences. Those with an interest in baking and/or pastry might find it especially engaging.
Each session includes a learning opportunity as well as a hands-on project to assist the Bakery. The overall goal of the program is to generate awareness of the needs being addressed by Sunflower Bakery and to develop community ambassadors so that our employment training programs can continue to grow and thrive. Students should participate during the Fall or Spring of the school year in which they will become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
