JOI's community organizing training fellowship jumpstarted my entry in the world of organizing and provided an education far deeper and more impactful than years of graduate school could have. The reach of the organization's work is exponential, each of the leaders it trains goes on to create positive change for communities across the country, within and beyond the Jewish community. I plan to continue supporting JOI into the future, because it gave (and continues to give) so much to me.

The Great!

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

the high quality training given by Program Director Catherine Bell and all the many trainers in JOI's network.

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

exceptionally bright, talented, passionate, and all around fantastic.

truly train an entire generation of Jewish leaders for social change and transform the American Jewish community.

The Jewish Organizing Initiative not only equips each year's class of fellows with the skills to be effective community organizers, it also instills in them a deep commitment to the principles of organizing. Fellows go on to pursue careers in a variety of fields, but all of them continue to make principles of justice, equity, cooperation, and sustainability central features of their work.

The Great!

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

my work as a community organizer for the last seven years.

I was a fellow in JOI in the "early years" and can honestly say that I wouldn't be where I am today without that experience. JOI introduced me to community organizing and I fell in love with activism. I have spent the past 10 years working in non-profits and am currently back in school for a Masters in Organization Development so I can help non-profits become even more effective in their work. JOI also helped me to think about the connections between Judaism and social justice and keep me rooted in my tradition.

Being a JOI fellow completely changed the way that I think about the world, and the ways in which I act for change within it. JOI allowed me to get my first job in the non-profit sector, while giving me the skills, training and support that I needed to stay in it over the long term. I would recommend this fellowship to anyone who is interested in organizing for social change. The boost that I got professionally from JOI is invaluable, and the friendships that I made along the way are wonderful. Thank you JOI!

I was a fellow in JOI this past year, and am blown away by the care, thought, and expertise in this small organization. Each year, JOI trains a class of young adults in community organizing, and I have seen firsthand the change they make in peoples' lives. The alumni go on to become the movers and shakers in the Boston social justice scene (and beyond).
