About this grant

The recruitment and training of professional organizers is among the most commonly identified barriers to the growth of community organizing. In particular, organizing groups articulate a strong interest in identifying and hiring organizers who reflect and are knowledgeable about the diverse communities in which they work, including diverse faith communities. In response to this need, Jewish Funds for Justice proposes to launch an interfaith organizing apprenticeship program. This grant will provide partial support for the first year of this initiative.
