In Temple Beth Am's Madrichim (Teaching Assistant) Program, students in 8th-12th grade can learn all about working in a school while receiving guidance from the teachers, staff, and teen supervisors. This year we have over 140 Madrichim, making our program not only the biggest in Seattle but one of the largest in the United States and Canada. It is also the only program in the entire Reform movement with a built-in teen supervisory program!

Positions vary widely, and include jobs such as:

  • classroom teaching assistant
  • photographer
  • song leader
  • art assistant
  • office assistant
  • librarian

Community service hours and training available.

Eighth graders are considered to be Madrichim-in-Training, and receive community service hours for every hour spent in the classroom. Ninth - twelfth graders are paid 85% of minimum wage until they are 16 years old, and then earn full minimum wage.

All Madrichim are expected to regularly attend their age-appropriate Tuesday night Religious School classes.


Attention current Madrichim and 8th graders: we want you to be Madrichim next year! Now is your chance to be a part of the biggest, best Madrichim program in the country. Give back to the TBA community in the most meaningful way possible, by serving as a mentor to a little one. Gain invaluable job training and experience in a fun, innovative environment.
