Spend a Year Fighting Poverty
Each year, AVODAH recruits people in their 20s from across the United States to spend a year working on urban poverty issues full-time at local non-profit organizations. During their year of service, participants live and study together, forming a community of people making a connection between social activism and Jewish life.
AVODAH is currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 program year on a rolling basis.
Corps members help bring housing, education and other basic services to thousands of people each year, and add capacity to our partners worth over $18,000.
