Changemakers is a virtual leadership development experience designed to expand your career options, your network, and, most importantly, your desire and ability to effect positive change in your community and the world at large.

The Spring 2023 session offers professional affinity cohorts in business/entrepreneurship/finance, marketing/communications, healthcare, law/policy, and real estate — or you can join a general cohort.

If you’re Jewish, 20-25 years old, and you’re interested in shaping the Jewish future, the Changemakers Fellowship is for you.

“What was really interesting to me was that the Changemakers program allowed for individuals not only to grow, but to grow into something that could help our Jewish community.”
--- Samantha Pear

Join hundreds of peers from across North America.

Engage in meaningful discussions and expand your understanding of yourself and those around you – all with people who are as passionate and interested in shaping the Jewish future as you are.

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

Being a Changemaker is a lifelong journey

The Fellowship program equips you with the tools, training, and understanding to effectively jumpstart your leadership career. And then we move forward.

Introducing the Network

The Changemakers Network provides connection and networking opportunities to those who have completed the fellowship. Members have exclusive opportunities to connect with peers, mentors, and the greater Jewish community and explore continued involvement with Changemakers and Jewish Federations.

If you’re already a Changemaker Fellowship alum and you haven’t already joined the Network – it’s time to get connected!

Or, if you’re a Network member but have been away for a while, it’s time to reconnect. Either way, take a moment now and visit.
