Volunteer ‘Federation Fellows’ can earn trip to Israel

The Young Adult Division of the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties is establishing a “Federation Fellows” program to engage five young leaders in volunteerism throughout the year.

The 10-month experience will culminate in a free trip to Israel as part of the National Young Leadership mission to Israel held each July.

“The Federation Fellows program is designed to create a stronger connection between the work of the Federation and our young adult community,” explained Zack Levine, the Federation’s director of impact initiatives. The Fellows selected will commit to volunteering 10 hours per month between September 2016 and June 2017 in activities that promote and support the Federation’s work. These duties will be tailored to the interests and abilities of the Fellows selected and could include writing thank-you cards to donors, expanding and planning the monthly Happy Hour events, serving on Federation event committees, data entry, assistance with mailings, and most importantly, talking about Federation and YAD in the community.

The criteria for selection will be age range (21-45), past demonstration of involvement with YAD or Jewish activities, and personal interview (for finalists). The Fellows program seeks to identify a diverse group of individuals, representative of varying levels of religious observance, personal history with Israel, gender and sexual preference, style of upbringing, and relationship status.

Interested individuals should prepare a statement that details reason for interest, personal information (age, relationship status, level of Jewish observance, and synagogue affiliation if any), what the individual imagines he or she would contribute to the program, and why the individual is interested in this opportunity. The personal statement should be submitted by Monday, Aug. 15 to Zack Levine at
