FOR AGES 21-26 – Avodah Jewish Service Corps
Applications are now open for the Avodah Jewish Service Corps, a year long program for individuals ages 21-26 to build a lifetime of leadership skills, an active Jewish community, a powerful professional network, and a more just America.
Spend a year serving for justice at a leading anti-poverty organization while living and learning at the crossroads of activism and Jewish life. As a member of the Jewish Services Corps, you will:
- Build real-world expertise with critical, hands-on work experience. You’ll be placed with one of Avodah’s partner organizations in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Washington, DC, or our newest city, San Diego. Through on-the-ground direct service work, you’ll contribute meaningfully to our partners’ work on crucial justice issues such as immigration, food insecurity, education, healthcare, criminal justice, and much more.
- Develop activist chops and Jewish social justice insights. Avodah’s trusted, innovative curriculum examines the causes and effects of domestic poverty, develops practical skills, and looks at justice work through a Jewish lens. Programming will deepen, contextualize, and nourish your day-to-day work while preparing you to stay in social and economic justice movements for the long haul.
- Live and learn in the dynamic Avodah community. Home-cooked meals, late night conversations, and holiday celebrations make living communally in the bayit (house) memorable and meaningful. We have also introduced our first Jews of Color Bayit in NYC – learn more at https://avodah.net/who-we-are/jocbayit/.
- Access activism, professional development, and Jewish opportunities for life. Over 1,200 social justice leaders across the country serve as active, engaged members of our alumni community. They’ll help you with everything from apartment hunts to job references to holiday meals invites.
In addition to a year of professional and personal growth, Corps Members receive a monthly living stipend, health insurance, a travel allowance, and subsidized housing. The program will run August 2021- August 2022.
Avodah is committed to building a Service Corps that inclusively represents our diverse community. Sephardi Jews, Mizrahi Jews, Jews of Color, people of color, women, people with disabilities, immigrants, LGBT2QIA people, and people who come from poor or working class backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply!
