Building on the momentum of the alumni Scholarship Phone-a-thon, Camp Ramah in Wisconsin is launching a new leadership initiative to expand engagement with Ramah alumni in their mid-20’s and 30’s. The goal in launching this effort is to identify future camp volunteer leadership, strengthen the culture of “giving back” to camp and establish more alumni ambassadors for camp. RLI will consist of quarterly cohort meetings, 90 minutes in length, at various venues, each hosted by Ramah Wisconsin alumni at their place of business. Each cohort will last two calendar years (8 total cohort meetings). The Ramah Leadership Initiative is an opportunity for participants to:
deepen their relationship with Ramah
learn more about the inner-workings of camp
learn from Ramah Wisconsin alumni across many industry types
engage in community leadership
expand professional/business networks
develop skill sets that benefit them in their work and as lay leaders in the community
Ramah is committed to investing resources to make the program a success. RLI Cohort members will make the commitment to attend the cohort meetings and attempt to raise $1,800 annually within the framework of the December Phone-a-thon and other related fundraising efforts over the course of the year. Camp Ramah will offer training and guidance to accomplish this objective.

Camp Ramah in Wisconsin is launching RLI Cohort II in Chicago this summer, and Cohort III in New York later this year. RLI is a new leadership initiative to expand engagement with Ramah alumni in their mid-20’s and 30’s.
