Jewish Democratic Council of America Organizing Fellowship (Paid)

The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) is recruiting college students for a paid fellowship program for the Summer and Fall 2022 semesters. Fellows will work remotely.

  • The Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) is the voice of Jewish Democrats and the only national organization that combines Jewish values advocacy with a Democratic political agenda. JDCA advocates for Democratic candidates, elected officials, and policies that align with socially progressive, pro-Israel, and Jewish values. Our work includes identifying and supporting Democratic candidates; mobilizing and educating Jewish voters; getting out the vote in key elections; and advocating for policies consistent with the values of Jewish Democrats.
  • JDCA played a critical role in the 2020 presidential and Georgia runoff elections by launching 15 state chapters across the country to turnout Jewish voters in support of Democrats. Chapters are JDCA’s primary grassroots operation and advance our mission through advocacy, education, and electoral activism.
  • Our fellows will serve as JDCA’s point people on the ground and work directly with JDCA’s state chapters to mobilize their peers, support JDCA’s advocacy priorities, and get out the Jewish vote for endorsed Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections. Through this program, JDCA will support student engagement in the electoral process and amplify their voices in local Democratic circles.

Objectives:

  • Organizing: Fellows will be trained and equipped with the necessary skills to organize Jewish voters and volunteers in their state. Fellows will work directly with state chapters to build their membership with the goal of turning out the Jewish vote for key races in their state and across the country. Fellows will recruit volunteers, including students on their campus, to participate in phonebanks, text banks, and other volunteer opportunities.
  • Leadership Development: The objective of the fellowship program is to equip the next generation of Jewish leaders with the necessary skills to advocate for our Jewish, pro-Israel and Democratic values. JDCA will provide leadership and development training, staff support, educational and networking opportunities, access to organizing tools and technology, and other resources to support fellows in advancing JDCA’s mission and their careers.

Requirements:

  • The fellowship will commence in June 2022, and end shortly after the November 2022 midterm elections. Fellows will work full-time during the Summer from June through August, and then part-time from September through November.
  • Fellows will be required to attend regular check-ins with JDCA staff, participate in leadership development and training sessions, work alongside existing volunteers and chapter leaders, and meet a minimum number of recruitment/GOTV calls each week.

Compensation:

  • Fellows will receive $500 a month for the summer (June through August) and $500 total for the Fall (September through November) for a total stipend of $2,000.
