FJC Fellowship: Applicant Information
The FJC Fellowship: Get a Real Job — at Camp!
The FJC Fellowship is designed to connect talented camp staff to careers in Jewish camp, and beyond. Through the FJC Fellowship, you will gain invaluable professional skills and work experience from our NYC-based headquarters, and still get to spend your summers at your Jewish camp!
The FJC Fellowship is a paid, two-year fellowship for recent college graduates seeking professional opportunities in the field of Jewish Camp. Fellows spend the academic year working full-time at the Foundation for Jewish Camp office in New York City. Each Fellow will work in a different department at FJC, providing valuable support for national field initiatives, large-scale FJC programs, and organizational operations. Fellows will be supervised by senior FJC professionals, attend key meetings and events, and be exposed to the inner workings of a national non-profit organization. Individually and as a cohort, Fellows will have access to professional development opportunities and mentorship from Jewish camp professionals. Fellows spend their summers working in a leadership role at their home summer camp. In addition to working at camp in the summer, Fellows will have the opportunity to visit 1-2 other Jewish camps in session, to expose them to the wider Jewish camp network.
