Join AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps, a one-year program combining work for social change, Jewish learning and community building!
WORK full time at a grassroots anti-poverty organization in New York City or Washington, DC. Make positive changes on the issues you care about--hunger, literacy, public health, domestic violence and housing.
STUDY with other corps members throughout the year. You will learn from traditional Jewish texts, take workshops from local activists, and share your knowledge and passion with one another.
BUILD COMMUNITY with other young Jewish adults who are committed to integrating social change and Jewish values in a pluralistic environment. AVODAH participants, of all Jewish backgrounds, live together, forming a powerful community with bonds that last a lifetime!
There is no cost for AVODAH. All participants receive health insurance as well as a living stipend to pay for food, rent and other expenses. Student loan deferrals are available. All participants receive a $1,000 exit stipend and most qualify for an AmeriCorps Education Award voucher of up to $4,725 for continued education or repayment of student loans.
