The Jewish Coalition for Service is a membership-based organization connecting volunteers with more than 40 Jewish service programs in the United States and Israel.
Inspired by the success of our Leading Up North program, we partnered with the Coalition, with a focus on keeping alumni of service programs engaged, particularly through the Coalition’s online network and a new Jewish Service Alumni Initiative, jointly led by American Jewish World Service and AVODAH.
The alumni initiative, known as Pursue: Action for a Just World, aimed to inspire, engage and support alumni of volunteer service programs and their peers as lifelong agents for social justice, rooted in and nourished by Jewish values.
Prior to closing in 2012, Pursue touched the lives of 6,000 young people through nearly 300 programs in 7 cities with 165 partner organizations.
