March Residential Trip

This March, our participants came together for our annual Leadership Residential. With close to 45 young people in attendance, we dived into lots of exciting programmes. Highlights included engaging evening sessions planned and run by our Y12/13s, Shabbat games and learning about barriers in sport. One of our Year 13s shared, ‘It was amazing this weekend to have the opportunity to put all my learning into felt like such an achievement’. 


We are really impressed with how our participants threw themselves into the weekend. From lively discussions to fun sports sessions, the weekend was a hit! We look forward to seeing what our leaders will bring to the future of Maccabi GB, whether that be through the upcoming EMYG as volunteers and managers, and other community engagements beyond.
