I have been receiving AVODAH volunteers to help run our legal clinic for seven years. They have been outstanding workers and friends. The quality of people AVODAH gets each year to donate their time to helping the poor with our and other organizations is incredible. AVODAH not only instills a strong sense of Jewish tradition and values in its members, it provides crucial services to this country's poor.

The Great!

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

having great help to be the hub of our legal clinic for the last seven years. Without AVODAH, I am not sure where we would have gotten resources to run our clinic. Many of them also know how to spell "personally" correctly.

Ways to make it better...

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

reduce the administrative stuff.

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

The fantastic people I've gotten to work with, supervise, and befriend.

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

male and female. I have no idea what you're asking here, but I'll say that I received AVODAH volunteers through the program. They have been great.

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

hire better survey takers.

Ways to make it better...

They had just a little bit less administrative stuff.

I was in AVODAH in DC from 2005-2006. AVODAH offered me a tremendous opportunity to do anti-poverty work in the community. While we worked in jobs and lived simply just as we might have in typical Americorps positions, AVODAH offered us incredible "extra" support that was invaluable to us and our placements. AVODAH supported us socially - because we lived with people having similar ideals and going through experiences. AVODAH supported us financially - because it ensured that we had affordable housing, and it worked with our sites to make sure medical costs would not exceed our ability to pay them. AVODAH works with corps members and site placements to make sure jobs will be good opportunities and can be a mediator if any difficulties arise with the placement. Beyond the benefits to the participants, AVODAH is in a family of service corps that provided tremendous benefits to non-profits in the DC area. Site placements know that they're getting great employees for low cost, and they're likely to continue as AVODAH site placements year after year. AVODAH is wonderful!

My year with Avodah was a transformative experience. It was one of the most challenging, most beautiful years of my life. However, it sure as hell wasn't easy. I came to the program most excited about the placement (I was at a wonderful organization called i.c.stars) and was most trepidatious about the communal living aspect. it turned out I learned the most from living with 6 other young Jews learning how to change the world. I learned about the conscientiousness necessary when dealing with people living in community. This connected directly to working with communities outside my own and the importance if inclusion and considering as many different points of view as possible. My understanding of the world and myself was expanded tremendously.

The Great!

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

the connections and experiences that Avodah provides the opportunity for its participants to seize are tremendous for young Jewish professionals looking to make the world better.

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

involved and dedicated to making this thing work and function as effectively as possible.

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

reach more people, expand to more cities to provide people to organizations all over the country, all over the world. A fund could be created to seed projects by Avodah alum to help them create the change needed to transform the world.
