We offer three primary programs to advance your social justice leadership. Read below to make sure you apply to the right one for you.

 Jewish Service Corps

Our Jewish Service Corps places young adults ages 21-26 into a year of full-time service at leading nonprofits in Chicago, New York, New Orleans, and Washington, DC. Corps Members live together as a community and participate in weekly educational programs to deepen their understanding of domestic poverty and explore their work through the lens of Jewish tradition. Applications are now closed. Sign up to be notified when applications for the ’24-’25 program open in November below.

 Avodah Justice Fellowship

The Avodah Justice Fellowship convenes cohorts of early-career professionals working on social and economic issues for eight months of intensive learning, mentorship, and community-building in an inclusive Jewish framework. Applications are now open in Chicago, Kansas City, and (for the first time since 2020!) New York City.  Request an application ASAP to get started!

 Avodah Institute for Social Change

The Avodah Institute for Social Change trains Jewish leaders from across the Jewish professional sector in social change work to transform the culture of American Jewish life. This work responds both to the timeless Jewish imperative to pursue justice and the current moment when Jewish organizations nationally have expressed a heightened concern with creating an equitable and inclusive society.
