But...what does “changemaker” really mean?

A Changemaker is a (current or aspiring) leader in the Jewish community - they are invested, involved, and dedicated to bettering the world around them.

As a young leader, you’ll join hundreds of Jewish peers from all over the world who are as passionate and interested in securing the Jewish future as you are.

(And the $350 stipend is pretty nice, too.)

What is the changemakers experience?

Your experience as a Changemaker will begin with an intensive where you will have opportunities to engage in meaningful, thoughtful discussions aimed at expanding your understanding of yourself and those around you. After jumpstarting your leadership journey with a Fellowship experience, you will have ongoing access to networking and educational opportunities as part of our ever-growing Changemakers community.
