AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps
Sixty-eight (68) AmeriCorps members between the ages of 21-26 will serve in urban anti-poverty agencies in Chicago, New Orleans, New York City and Washington, DC. At the end of the immersive year of service, August 31, 2013, the Corps members will have played a vital role in meeting critical social needs in low-income communities, and they will emerge from the year with a long-term commitment to service and civic engagement. This project will focus primarily on the CNCS focus areas of Economic Opportunity, Education, and Healthy Futures. AVODAH is requesting $863,226 in funding from CNCS.
