JSC@home Fellowship

 

Volunteer virtually to serve critical needs of communities around the world with the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian organization.

The JSC@home Fellowship offers young Jewish adults the opportunity to directly engage with JDC’s global mission while actively fulfilling the value of global Jewish responsibility.

Launched in 1987, the JSC Fellowship places recent college graduates and young professionals in year-long service opportunities in global communities served by JDC and is internationally recognized for providing leadership development through global service with a Jewish values lens. Today, while international travel is limited, the JSC@home Fellowship enables young adults to fulfil the value of global Jewish responsibility from afar through a 6-month cohort-based experience.

WHO’S A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE JSC@home FELLOWSHIP?

JSC@home Fellows are emerging and rising young leaders in their 20s and 30s who have demonstrated interest in public service or humanitarian work and global Jewish causes. Successful candidates are independent, mature, and flexible. They have a sense of responsibility, balance humility with curiosity and exhibit strong interpersonal skills. They have some work experience and a college degree or equivalent. Knowledge of foreign language(s) and Jewish education is a plus, but not a requirement. 

WHAT DOES THE JSC@home FELLOWSHIP LOOK LIKE?

Fellows are matched with communities seeking someone with their talents and skills. Through their virtual placements, fellows contribute to organizational needs while developing their knowledge of global Jewish causes. Ongoing learning, including two virtual seminars and monthly coaching, webinars, and peer-to-peer cohort building serve to develop leaders who have a global mindset and powerful skillset. 

A typical work week of 10-15 hours will be comprised of meetings with field supervisor and staff, independent assignments and facilitating community programming where relevant. Flexible working hours may be required due to fellows living in different time zones from their placement communities. Fellows receive stipends of $500/month and will receive a welcome package upon acceptance.  

JSC@home Fellows will serve with offices in locations around the world, including in India, Israel, Hungary and Ukraine. Tasks range from social media content creation and graphic design to teaching and curriculum development. Placements serve Jewish communities, JDC departments and international development partner organizations.
