We are now accepting applications on a rolling basis for our Avodah’s Jewish Service Corps program until all spots in our cohorts are filled. The program will run from August 2022-August 2023.
Avodah has partnered with organizations on a wide range of justice issues from immigration and refugee support, healthcare and education, criminal justice reform, to food security and LGBTQ+ advocacy. Interested candidates can now view open placements across all of our program cities and select up to 5 roles they’re interested in working with for the service year. We even still have offerings in our only west coast city, San Diego. Encourage students to take advantage of these newly rolled out application perks before spots run out by applying today.
