Meet Our Alumni


For over ten years, AJWS service programs have sent individuals and groups to work in solidarity with local NGOs in Asia, Africa and the Americas. Following their programs, the 3,000+ members of the AJWS alumni community continue to make social change happen in a variety of ways reflective of their diverse passions and interests. We are proud to highlight just a few of these incredible individuals here:
