Nominate a JFCS New Leaders Fellow

Thank you for your interest in the New Leaders Fellowship at JFCS. The 2021-2022 application process has ended. Please check back with us in the summer of 2022 for applications for the 2022-2023 New Leaders Fellowship Cohort.


The JFCS New Leaders Fellowship offers an inspiring educational experience to emerging Jewish leaders of the Bay Area.

During the nine-month fellowship, participants grapple with critical issues facing the Jewish and wider community and dive into key tenets of nonprofit management, while building a collaborative community of peers.

In culmination of their work, graduated Fellows have the opportunity to put their learning into action and contribute through ongoing leadership roles at JFCS and through the JFCS Fellowship Alumni Network.
