Summer Social Work Program

Yachad/National Jewish Council for Disabilities has one of the most prestigious and exclusive social work development/employment opportunities in the country.  Hundreds of applicants between their first and second years of social work graduate school programs from around the country compete for only 5 spots in the Summer Social Work Program, based out of the agency’s international headquarters in Bowling Green area of New York City.  A paid stipend is awarded.  Graduate students accepted into this program are not considered interns or students, but are instead expected to work at the agency and contribute to the functioning of diverse programming under the mentorship of an established and accomplished career social worker.  Participants will be assigned to agency programs, projects, and divisions that match one or more of their career goals, including: Clinical and Direct Practice; Leadership and Organizational Management; Development; Research; Advocacy; Community Organizing; Policy; and Disability Studies.
