The JDC-BBYO Global Service Fellowship
JDC and BBYO are deepening their long-time partnership through an exciting new opportunity for BBYO alumni. Four BBYO alumni will be selected to serve as JDC-BBYO Global Service Fellows through the 2010-2011 Jewish Service Corps (JSC).
Placements could include locations such as: India, Turkey, Israel, Poland, Estonia, Serbia, and the former Soviet Union.
The unique responsibilities of the JDC-BBYO Fellows would include serving as ‘BBYO experts’ in their placements overseas, bringing BBYO resources to Jewish communities overseas and/or in Israel. Additionally, the Fellows would work to link North American Jewish teens with their peers overseas.
For a number of years JDC and BBYO have maintained a collaborative partnership. This partnership has included BBYO teens raising thousands of dollars for JDC programs around the world, as well as JDC providing timely updates and speakers on global issues of interest to Jewish teens.
