Applications for the 2021 Jeremiah Fellowship cohort will open in April 2021. If you're interested in learning more, please reach out to Matt Kolbert, Jeremiah Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Jeremiah Fellowship is a leadership program for young adult Jews (ages 22-32) who want to join a Bend the Arc organizing team in their home city to fight for progressive change. Fellows will learn key organizing skills and take leadership on important campaigns alongside other Bend the Arc leaders and community partners.
In this moment of rising white nationalism, anti-immigrant xenophobia, and antisemitism, our democracy is under attack. Our country, and our Jewish community, stands at a crossroads. Will we stand by in silence? Or will we rise up, with the moral courage of our ancestors, to fight for a future where we are all safe?
The choice is clear and the time is now for a new generation to organize and win. That’s why Bend the Arc is investing in the leadership of young adult Jews all across the country who are rising to the challenge of this moment.
The Jeremiah Fellowship is an intensive, experiential leadership training program in community organizing. Through issue campaigns and public action, fellows learn how to think strategically, mobilize their community, and foster public leadership.
The Jeremiah Fellowship will equip fellows to:
- Build a volunteer leadership team in their city
- Stand in solidarity with communities under attack to fight racist policies
- Plan strategic public protests
- Influence elected officials
