Spend a year in the Jewish Service Corps working at a leading anti-poverty nonprofit in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Washington, DC, or our newest city, San Diego. Our Corps Members live and learn together in a supportive, pluralistic community at the crossroads of justice and Jewish life. Join us to build the foundations for careers, Jewish community, and lifelong activism in social and economic justice movements.
If you’re between the ages of 21-26 and passionate about getting into the justice game for the long haul, you could have a place in our growing community. The application for the 2020-2021 program year is open now — we are accepting applications on a rolling basis until all spots are filled.
You’re never alone in Avodah. You’ll be living with your fellow Corps Members, supporting each other, eating together, and celebrating Jewish life together (plus the occasional dance party).
Avodah is bigger than the work – it’s about understanding the issues at play from the ground up. We’ll teach you everything from the structural roots of poverty to the history of Jewish social justice and skills for social change. This is the kind of knowledge that you’ll use for the rest of your life.
