Empower Fellowship

The Empower Fellowship is a track within the Jewish Organizing Fellowship for Jews who self-identify as people with disabilities, disabled, or differently-abled*. Empower Fellows are part of the Jewish Organizing Fellowship, engaging in all of the training, community, and mentorship that come with being a Jewish Organizing Fellow. They also participate in additional trainings to support their leadership as Jewish organizers with disabilities. JOIN provides training and coaching to support the Empower Fellows’ placement organizations (employers) in being as accessible and inclusive as possible, as well as funding to help them hire their Fellows.
