What's ROI

ROI Community is an international network of activists and change makers who are redefining Jewish engagement for a new generation of global citizens. ROI Community members channel a diversity of perspectives, skills and interests toward a shared passion for advancing ideas and partnerships that will strengthen Jewish communities and improve society. Through its capstone Summit and an innovative suite of ongoing opportunities for professional development, networking and financial support, ROI empowers its members to take an active role in shaping the Jewish future. Today, ROI members are creating new and innovative ways to engage wider audiences in Jewish life globally.

ROI Community is an initiative of the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, a global organization that seeks to ignite the passion and unleash the power in young people to create positive change in the Jewish community and across the broader world. Schusterman pursues its mission by working collaboratively with others to support and operate high-quality education, identity development, leadership training and service programs designed to help young people cultivate their growth as individuals and as leaders.

The ROI Summit

The Summit is a five-day professional development gathering where 150 of the Jewish world’s brightest young minds from every corner of the globe and every field of endeavor meet face-to-face to dream big, network intensely, and learn a great deal from each other. The Summit takes place each summer in Jerusalem and acts as the gateway into ROI Community: once an individual participates, they become an ROI member. 

The Year-Round Activity of ROI Community, aka ROI 360

ROI Community is an active, ongoing community where Jewish innovators collaborate with one another and offer each other strategic support and advice on different aspects of their personal and professional lives. We call this a "community of reciprocity," in which members both gain from and contribute to the network. Members have access to a wide range of offerings, including professional development courses and delegations, micro funding, leadership opportunities, Community events and more. This suite of year-round opportunities is geared toward creating ongoing learning and connections that spark game-changing, collaborative ideas.

We support and nurture the young, creative people in our Community because we believe that these innovative minds will ultimately shape the future of the Jewish world for years to come.
