2020 - 2021 Seattle Young Jews for Justice Application
Calling all young Jewish justice-seekers! Do you want to learn how to get involved with activism, have fun, meet new people, go on retreats, eat snacks, and change the world?
We are looking for young Jews and allies (ages 13-19) who want to create change through community organizing. No prior experience necessary!
This is an 8-month commitment to being an organizer with Seattle Young Jews for Justice (SYJJ). Program runs from October 4th, 2020 to May 23rd, 2021, and will meet every Wednesday from 4-5pm on Zoom and every first Sunday of the month for a COVID-careful* outdoor activity.
BUT... WHY WOULD I DO THIS THO?
To build a tight knit, loving community with other activists and your fellow Jews.
To get professional development and skills (like promotion & outreach, event & action planning, budgeting, public speaking & facilitation, and more).
To learn about forms of oppression and how to fight against them.
To apply Jewish concepts to your life in new ways.
To eat hella snacks and go on fun retreats and field trips (when we gather using COVID-careful* precautions, that is).
To get 50+ community service hours.
*In-person meet-ups will have options to participate remotely for anyone who is not able to gather in person. COVID-careful for us means: always outdoors; groups of no more than 10 young people; all wear masks; 6-ft distance maintained at all times; plenty of hand sanitizer; individually packaged snacks.
