why: build communityNew York City can offer so much - an internship, a job, networking opportunities, a wide variety of classes, and endless bars and clubs. However, the hardest commodity to come by is community. With an estimated 5,000 Jewish-identified students attending the schools we serve, there is significant community building to be done. We measure our success not in the number of folks who pass through our doors, but rather in the number of lives transformed over four years.

Engagement Interns will gain experience in relationship-based engagement, community organizing, and project management.
