Limited spots remain for the 2020-2021 Avodah’s 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 justice and Jewish life.

As a member of the Jewish Service Corps Program, 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, or Washington, DC. Through on-the-ground direct service work, you’ll contribute meaningfully to our partners’ work on crucial justice issues such as immigration, hunger, education, public health, domestic violence, 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 with 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.
  • Access activism, professional development, and Jewish opportunities for life. Over a thousand social justice leaders across the country serve as active, engaged members of our alumni community. They’ll help you with everything from apartments hunts to job references to holiday meal invites.

In addition to a year of professional and personal growth, Corps Members receive a monthly living stipend, health insurance, travel allowance, and subsidized housing.
