✔︎ Purpose of the raffle – 100% of profits of the raffle are set aside as scholarships for students who cannot afford tuition.
✔︎ Life skill lesson benefits from the raffle campaign for the Shaarei Arazim Students.
While the raffle serves as a much-needed fundraiser to the Yeshiva, the real success can only be measured by the many life skills lessons that the students are learning by participating in this campaign. To list just a few:
The boys learn the power of setting goals. Last year, every Talmid reached the goal he had set for himself, and many exceeded them. They clearly saw that having a clear goal gives them focus, and spurred them toward greater achievements.
Whether it is the fear of rejection, failure, or approaching strangers, or speaking in public, the raffle campaign forces our Talmidim to face their fears head-on and overcome them.
“How much can I really accomplish?”; “What are my true strengths?”; “Do I have limits other than the ones I put on myself?” As the boys set new records for the number of tickets sold, while maintaining the integrity of their sedorim, they gain new invaluable insights into their own amazing abilities.
By achieving more than they thought possible, the Talmidim come to understand that they can do anything they set their mind to.
“I have no one to call!” Our boys learn not to be stymied by seemingly insurmountable problems. Whether by making lists, networking, or simply wracking their brains, the boy finds that, their motivation unlocks a fountain of ingenuity to help overcome obstacles.
Prioritizing & Time Management
With the raffle deadline fast approaching; the boys need to learn how to make the most of small windows of available time, and to forgo some discretionary activities for the sake of a more important need.
Communication & Presentation
Selling tickets requires the Bachurim to learn how to express themselves clearly and with confidence, while at the same time, representing themselves and the Yeshiva positively.
