The Global Jewish Service Corps (JSC) Fellowship is a year-long, paid, professional opportunity for Jewish young professionals to volunteer overseas with JDC, the world's leading Jewish humanitarian aid organization. Launched in 1987, the JSC Fellowship is internationally recognized for providing leadership development through global service with a Jewish values lens.
Currently, Fellows are serving around the world in Estonia, Hungary, India, Israel, Latvia, Rwanda, Turkey, and more.
Who is a good candidate for the JSC Fellowship?
JSC 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 adventure, 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) or Jewish education is a plus, but not a requirement.
What does the JSC Fellowship look like?
Fellows are matched with communities seeking someone with their talents and skills. Through their field placements, Fellows contribute to community life while developing their leadership capacity and knowledge of global Jewish causes. Ongoing learning, including three leadership retreats and monthly coaching, support the Fellow’s growth, developing leaders who have a global mindset and a powerful skillset.
