Hannah Ferber brings to Tivnu her experience in organizing programs and projects from the public, nonprofit, and business sectors. After graduating from Macalester College with a B.A. in Mathematics, she was a Teach For America teacher in a diverse school district in East San Jose, California. During her teaching years she studied graduate-level special education while building hands-on learning experiences for her students. Following teaching, Hannah ran Big Brothers Big Sisters school-based mentoring programs across the greater Portland Metro Area, collaborating with school personnel and case managing volunteers and children. In 2008 Hannah joined a web design and marketing business and is now an account and project manager. She is also joining with other young professionals to actively explore how to build a vibrant community of 20- and 30-somethings in Portland. Hannah is excited to support Tivnu’s mission to support young people learning first hand about Jewish social justice values and becoming an active part of creating change.
