Who Should Apply to Become a Global Advocacy Fellow?
The Global Advocacy Fellowship is for highly motivated people with demonstrated leadership skills, a commitment to Jewish life and a passion to secure the Jewish future.  Successful candidates will have an interest in applying what they learn upon completion of the program, hopefully with AJC.  They will also appreciate the special relationships between philanthropy and leadership. Finally, allowing for unanticipated circumstances, the successful Fellow will be expected to be an active participant in the program throughout.

What Will Global Advocacy Fellows Do?  What Will They Learn?
The answer to both questions is – a lot. The program will mix opportunities to:

  •  Meet with policy makers in and out of AJC;
  • Participate in AJC advocacy, such as diplomatic meetings;
  • Attend major convocations, such as the AJC Global Forum;
  • Learn about the issues and strategies that drive AJC advocacy;
  • Engage with strategic faith and ethnic partners;
  • Attend AJC events such as the Diplomats Seder.

Meetings and programs will take place roughly once a month from April to July.  In addition, there will be opportunities to participate in other AJC initiatives according to a Fellow’s interests.
