JDC and BBYO Launch Overseas Service Fellowship

What do you get when you cross the largest global Jewish humanitarian organization with one of the world’s leading Jewish youth movements? (No, this is not a joke). The answer: teenagers engaged in meaningful overseas Jewish experiences that will change their lives and the lives of Jews on every continent.

What do you get when you cross the largest global Jewish humanitarian organization with one of the world’s leading Jewish youth movements? (No, this is not a joke). The answer: teenagers engaged in meaningful overseas Jewish experiences that will change their lives and the lives of Jews on every continent.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of the JDC-BBYO Global Service Fellowship. This new initiative will place four BBYO alumni with JDC’s Jewish Service Corps for one year to work with overseas Jewish communities addressing their most pressing welfare needs and strengthening Jewish renewal programs. Fellows will also help develop teen programming and connections to Jewish life through BBYO’s innovative leadership activities and international network.

Thanks to the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation for their support in jump-starting this initiative.
