Mitzvah Corps is a network of global social justice travel programs, connecting teens with opportunities to understand the complexities of injustice around the world, how to engage with local communities in a sensitive and respectful way, and how Judaism empowers them to be agents of positive, sustainable change. Our programs go beyond a traditional service trip, working alongside innovative partners, and supplemented by a curriculum designed to address the real issues inherent in volunteer travel.

The success of each program relies on a strong, dynamic, and experienced staff team. Every staff member is responsible for overseeing the emotional, physical, and mental health, happiness, and well being of the participants, and is "on duty" 24/7. They are expected to contribute equally to both social and educational programming, and approach both structured and unstructured program time with intentionality and purpose, ensuring the Mitzah Corps and Reform Jewish values are prevalent throughout the experience.

Please check back soon for details regarding our 2018 staff structure and qualifications, and online application.

All Mitzvah Corps staff must be at least 18 years old, have experience working with teens, and have experience in the realm of social justice.
