Young Professional Social Impact Corps

The Young Professional Social Impact Corps brings together people in their 20s who want to hone their leadership skills, take action through direct-service projects, learn about populations in need, and delve deeper into the character traits that make up a Jewish leader. Participants will join 10 fun, interactive, bi-monthly gatherings, which will focus on developing connections and leadership skill-building, social issues in the Bay Area and beyond, and the groundbreaking work JFCS does to address these issues. The program will culminate in a group project to support the work of one JFCS department through direct service, fundraising, and other creative means.
