Emily Becker joined Avodah in December 2017 as Recruitment Manager. She discovered her passion for social justice work while studying English and Sociology at Connecticut College. Prior to joining Avodah, she worked for an educational equity organization, where she initially recruited at the community level to make summer learning accessible to underserved NYC youth. She later recruited the high-achieving college students who made that programming possible and she became committed to helping young adults develop into agents of social change. Emily can be found exploring used bookstores, working on her own fiction, and obsessing over every dog that crosses her path.
