Engagement, a term that for many young adults means a promise to marry, has turned into one of the largest stumbling blocks I have encountered in the development of my PresenTense project.
No, I’m not struggling with commitment or marriage – instead I am challenged by how to get Jewish young adults excited about participating in Open דור Door. For me, engagement brings to mind how to get young people involved in the Jewish community through participation in social programming and volunteering.
In these first stages of my training as a social entrepreneur, I have been reminded many times that I need to come up with a “hook” in order to cultivate interest for my idea. What I am concerned with moving forward is the need for regular participation and commitment to Open דור Door.
