jwave CHATS are online communities where parents of high school students connect, share information and support each other.

One of the most valuable resources to parents are other parents who share common experiences…

 

This is why jwave brings together parents of Jewish students of the same year group who attend non-Jewish schools into WhatsApp groups we call jwave CHATS.

We have established a number of these Chats since 2019, and we continue to create and build upon existing WhatsApp groups each year. We already have multiple chat communities in schools including Killara High School, Reddam House, Rose Bay Secondary College, South Sydney High School, North Shore families and we also have cross-school year group communities from years 7-12.

80% of parents say that their jwave Chat provides them with a sense of community, connection, support and/or helpful information.

More about jwave CHATS…

Unity Without Uniformity (and no spam!)

The jwave Chat’s Code of Conduct calls for everyone to treat each other with our shared values of kindness and inclusivity – and refrain from being spammy! (We promise to do the same!) 

Chat Connectors Build Community

Each Chat is administered by a volunteer from within the Chat’s cohort – we call them Chat Connectors. Chat Connectors are there to help make connections, share relevant information and build community that is authentic to that cohort.

What’s jwave’s Role in the Chats?

We worked with parents to create a structure for Chats so that community can flourish – this includes Chat Connectors, a Code of Conduct and security checks.

jwave also helps direct parents to the right Chat for them, so that parents who would otherwise not know about one another or have no easy way to communicate can connect.
