JOIN AVODAH: THE JEWISH SERVICE CORPS & RISE TO THE CHALLENGE
One of our own (alumni) Jewish slugs has been working with the Jewish social-work organization AVODAH this year in New York City, and she is putting out the call for more to join... so presumably it is fulfilling work! We miss you Chimpo!
HELP fight for justice and equality in New York, Chicago, and Washington DC's neediest neighborhoods. Work full-time on issues you care about--immigration, hunger, literacy, public health, domestic violence, and more.
LEARN first-hand from veteran organizers, activists, and educators. Gain skills, investigate the connections between Judaism and social justice, and share your passions with fellow Corps members.
LIVE together with other young Jews and build a community committed to integrating social change and Jewish values in a pluralistic environment.
Join AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps. You'll earn health insurance and a modest living stipend to cover housing, food, transportation, and other expenses. There's a $1,000 exit stipend and most qualify for an Americorps Education Award up to $4,725 for repayment of student loans or future education. Student loan deferrals are available.
Applications are now available. The deadline to apply is Feb. 14, 2007. Go to Apply.Avodah.net or contact us at apply [at] avodah.net or 212-545-7759 x305.
