J Street U · New York City, New York
Department J Street U
Employment Type Fellowship

J Street is looking to hire student fellows to represent the organization on their campuses in the 2022-2023 school year. Interested students should complete this short application and demonstrate a commitment to J Street as well as an interest in its issues and experience in organizing.


With this prestigious one-year program, fellows will receive extensive mentorship and training as they run programs and engage students on their campuses around this important issue. Students have the opportunity to apply during the fall and spring semesters. Fellows will have access to organizing workshops, professional development training, and a deep network of current and former J Street U students. Fellows will also get access to J Street resources, direct lines of communication to our various departments, and other opportunities to learn about the conflict and advocate for ending America's support for the Occupation. 



Preference will be given to fellows applying from campuses with little or no J Street U membership. Once hired, fellows will be required to participate in an onboarding process.


Fellows’ responsibilities will include but are not limited to some of the following:

  • Representing J Street U at orientation, information sessions, and activities fairs each semester
  • Signing up interested students and handling their data administration
  • Running a certain number of J Street U programs on campus per term (film screenings, discussion groups, speakers)
  • Coordinating recruitment from their campus to J Street’s national conference in the Winter of 2022
  • Running occasional Information tables to ensure appropriate J Street U visibility on campus


Fellows will be paid $1500 for the academic year/$750 a semester and will be expected to work an average of 3-5 hours/week.


Applications for the Fall 2022 semester will be accepted on a rolling basis.


At J Street we value an inclusive, welcoming, and diverse workplace. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to understanding and valuing each other’s perspectives at all levels of the organization thereby creating a culture that allows us to better serve our employees, and the communities we work with. All qualified applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, national origin, age, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, gender identity or expression, or any other basis protected by local, state, or federal law. This policy applies with regard to all aspects of one’s employment and fellowship, including hiring, transfer, promotion, compensation, eligibility for benefits, and termination.
