AJC ACCESS has been by far one of the greatest experiences I have had with a non-profit organization. From diplomatic trips to countries around the world, volunteering in the local community and their amazing local programming in Energy through their J-REC (Jewish Response to the Energy Challenge), Young Diplomats Program where they train future leaders to hold diplomatic meetings at Embassies and Consulates, and the Jewish Identity in the World.
In the last year I have had the opportunity to meet and hear Shai Agassi talk about the future of the electric grid, meet with diplomats from Germany, Israel, and Mexico.
I first got started with ACCESS a few years back via their amazing Leadership Institute. I have participated in many leadership programs and this was by far the most engaging and educational. It addressed the state of Jews throughout the world, current issues affecting Jews in different parts of the world, how to address the media about these issues, and how AJC as a whole has developed strong relationships with foreign governments and local cultural and religious organizations in order to help build stronger diplomatic and civil rights partnerships.
I could go on and on and on. I will leave it at this and hope that others will check out AJC ACCESS and discover all that I have and more.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the leadership skills I have developed through working with this organization and how much I have learned about diplomacy and it's daily impact.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About every month
