Launched in 2002, Areyvut infuses the lives of Jewish youth with the core Jewish values of chesed (kindness), tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (social action). Areyvut offers a variety of opportunities to empower and enrich youth and make these core Jewish values meaningful to them. Our target audience is middle and high school students from all denominations of Judaism, all types of Jewish education and all levels of Jewish communal affiliation.
Areyvut seeks Summer Interns who are eager to make a meaningful contribution, learn about the non-profit world and challenge themselves. The interns will plan and implement events, create, develop and facilitate educational materials and programs. This position is ideal for those interested in pursuing a career in education, Jewish education, non-profit, development, event planning and/or publishing. To accommodate and maximize participation we are offering three sessions:
June 3-June 28
July 1-July 26
July 29-August 23
There is flexibility to begin earlier and/or stay later.
Interns will be based at the Areyvut office in Bergenfield, NJ (which is accessible by public transportation and only 15 miles from Manhattan). They will work under the supervision of Daniel Rothner, Areyvut Founder & Director, on Monday-Thursday from 9:30-3:30. This is a paid position.
Key Competencies and Qualifications:
Interns who complete a full session will receive $500 stipend at the conclusion of that session. Participants who continue with their project and/or help facilitate Areyvut programs during the academic year will receive $500 at the end of the fall semester. Those who are involved during the fall semester are eligible to continue during the spring semester and will receive $500 at the conclusion of the spring semester.
Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest and resume as a PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “Summer Intern” in the subject line. Only e-mail submissions will be accepted. Interviews will take place at the Areyvut office in Bergenfield, NJ on a rolling basis.
