                        The '22-'23 Jewish Service Corps application is now open!

                        Who should apply?
                        Our Corps Members are curious and compassionate. They come from a diverse range of backgrounds and have had different levels of engagement in the Jewish community. Sometimes they already know what career path is right for them, and sometimes they’re trying to find their place in the fight for justice. In short, they are:

                        – Between the ages of 21-26;
                        – Seeking a community with Jewish values;
                        – Passionate about fighting injustice.

                        Our Corps Members will:

                        Gain real-world expertise through critical, hands-on work experience. They’re placed with one of Avodah’s partner organizations in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Washington, DC, or San Diego. Through on-the-ground direct service work, Corps Members contribute meaningfully to our partners’ work on crucial justice issues such as immigration, climate change, education, housing, criminal justice reform, and more.

                        Develop activist chops and Jewish social justice insights. Avodah’s innovative curriculum examines the root causes and effects of systemic oppression, develops practical skills, and looks at justice work with a Jewish lens. Programming deepens, contextualizes, and nourishes Corp Members’ day-to-day work while preparing them to sustainably 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. Corps Members co-create intentional communities across the country, including in our new Jews of Color Bayit in NYC!

                        Access activism, professional development, and Jewish opportunities for life. Over 1,400 social justice leaders across the country serve as active, engaged members of our alumni community. They’ll help Corps Members with everything from apartment hunts to job references to holiday meals invites.

                        Have their basic needs met while they serve for justice. In addition to a year of professional and personal growth, Corps Members receive a modest monthly living stipend, health insurance, a travel allowance, and housing.
