FlashBuild: FOOD

FlashBuild is our new signature NYC-based 8-hour experience designed specifically for teens looking to engage in an "escape the room - type" challenge that is both fun and social while also thought-provoking and focused on a theme relevant to our times. 

The theme of this FlashBuild is FOOD. Together, the group will determine which food-related social issue they most want to tackle given the finite resources provided and a strict time limit. (And they'll do some eating along the way...)

Each FlashBuild is run by an impressive facilitator who is both Jewish and a subject-matter-expert in his/her field. This session will be co-run by Chefs Liz Alpern and Jeffrey Yoskowitz, Founders of The Gefilteria.

Teens will earn 6 hours of community service.
