Fantastic organization, open minded people, great reach. It has been very rewarding organizing intercultural activities and outreach to embassies and international communities, as AJC is very recognized as the main Jewish organization with a tolerant mindset and a unifying message.

A great group of smart, young, Jewish professionals who care about current events and policies impacting our country, religious freedom, Israel and the Jewish community. Well attended events, seminars and for those willing to get more engaged an opportunity to get to know about the great work AJC is doing nationally and internationally.

I have been volunteering with AJC Access for over 2 years and it is an incredible organization. I have had hands on experience dealing with issues ranging from energy security to national security to equal justice. As one example, I was able to meet and talk with the ambassadors of over 20 countries about issues affecting the Jewish community at a luncheon sponsored by the AJC. I can't think of another organization that has such an important impact on so many issues.

Had an amazing experience at Durban II. The planning and communication, coordination, and support was all first rate. ACCESS opened my eyes to a whole new world of international multilateral diplomacy and put trust in me as a delegate. This is how to build long term relationships with an organization, and how to truly build a community.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being part of the ACCESS delegation in Geneva last year.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more casual ACCESS events.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the community of engaged youth they bring together and the trust they put in us to share our own voices about issues we're concerned with.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

outstanding

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

increase engagement in all different parts of the world with social engagement that would help to change a whole cross-section of today's Jewish youth.

Ways to make it better...

I had known what was expected of me on the delegation and a way to fulfill that, but I wasn't completely sure if I was fulfilling their expectations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the young community of Jews and their relationship to social justice as opposed to just a relationship to israel.

One thing I'd also say is that...

ACCESS needs to develop more relationships in Africa.

This summer, I had a Goldman Fellowship with the AJC and learned about AJC's energy agenda. I helped to plan an event to teach people about the importance of reducing our oil-dependence and using alternative energy sources. Also, I had the opportunity to meet with dedicated and passionate AJC employees and lay leaders, politicians and diplomats, and understand the inner-workings of one of the most amazing and essential Jewish organizations in America. My work with the AJC this summer made it pretty clear to me that I want to work in the Jewish non-profit sector for a future career.

As high school ended, I was looking for an opportunity to experience working with an organization committed to Jewish communal service/advocacy. I was warmly welcomed by Rebecca Neuwirth and her ACCESS staff when I joined them for a month, working on reviewing AJC's high school Israel information and awareness curriculum, helping organize events, and coordinating other office-related efforts. It was wonderful and inspiring to be in an environment where so many people are accomplishing great things for the Jewish community of today and of tomorrow.

I have had an amazing experience as an Access Board Member. I have had the opportunity to engage the community of Miami and also attend some amazing events with international representation. There have also been many opportunities that I have been unable to take advantage of, including some missions to other countries regarding several different issues such as energy and immigration, that I heard were amazing. I did get to go to New Orleans for a great ACCESS conference that was very worthwhile.

I have had two very positive experiences with Access. The first was an information event I attended at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The second was a conference held in New Orleans in January 2009. On both occasions I have found the events to be well organized, informative and empowering.
