Lessons From the JCSC Fellowship: Professional Development for New Professionals

By Alicia Cohen

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Fall 2009

From 1994 to 2008, Hillelâ??s Jewish Campus Service Corps (JCSC) Fellowship was a preeminent entry point into the field of Jewish communal service. A survey of 41 JSCS alumni reveals that the Fellowship had a significant effect on Fellows, providing them with an interested mentor, useful job training, networking opportunities, and exposure to Jewish communal service work. Currently, those who had been accepted to the JCSC program upon its termination work as Program and Engagement Associates at Hillels. The author recommends a fusion of this professional opportunity with the learning and networking of the JCSC Fellowship in order to create a more successful and vibrant future for these young adults and the individuals they serve.
