Review for Avodah, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Avodah helps young Jewish adults to do social justice work while engaging in Jewish programming. It places Jewish Corps members in non-profit placements and supports them through th progression of their work. It has a broad network, that brings speakers from all over to engage members.I have enjoyed my placement in Chicago, working with people with mental illness. Avodah has shown me how Judaism relates to my work and reinforces the importance of it. Living with 6 other girls all working at non-profits has provided opportunities for story telling and experience relating which teaches me new things every day.

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

My day-to-day life as it supports me in the social justice work that I do.

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

Working with people.

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

Invested in the success of the program, and dedicated to creating positive experiences for corps members.

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

Expand its base into more cities and could help support more corps members doing social justice work.
