Joel Daner Yachad Communal Fellowship (JDYCF)
Yachad, the National Jewish Council for Disabilities (NJCD) is seeking outstanding post-college graduates who want to learn, grow and contribute to an innovative, thriving, and dynamic human rights organization that has been on the cutting edge of disability inclusion for the last 30 years. Candidates must be thoughtful and concerned about the broader Jewish community. Applicants must be able to think flexibly and creatively and also be interested in ‘doing.’
This year-long Fellowship, in the intersection of the Jewish community and the disability inclusion movement, will support the Fellows’ development in working as part of a dynamic multidisciplinary team aimed to meet the social and inclusion needs of Jewish individuals with diverse disabilities. This includes, but is not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental challenges, deaf and hard of hearing, physical disabilities, and medical health and mental health needs.
The Joel Daner Yachad Communal Fellowship (JDYCF) aims to shape emerging leaders who plan to go into careers in social work, psychology, medicine, education, not-for-profit management, development, public relations, policy planning or organizational leadership; or those who hope to serve the broad Jewish community in a lay leadership capacity.
The application deadline for the 2016-2017 cohort is March 14, 2016. Please submit all materials by this deadline as incomplete applications cannot be considered.
