In 2013 and 2014, we will be phasing out some of our existing service programs, including Volunteer Corps.* The Volunteer Corps volunteers currently in the field, are the final Volunteer Corps Cohort. This will allow us to increase our focus on linking service with U.S.-based advocacy for global justice. We are looking forward to launching our new service programs in the fall of 2013, and we are confident that these programs will strengthen our efforts to mobilize American Jews to advocate for human rights in the developing world. We will continue to build a strong cohort of committed Jewish global citizens, and our forthcoming programs are intended to inspire, train and empower key opinion leaders of all ages.
*The Volunteer Corps cohorts confirmed to deploy to India and Thailand/Cambodia in January 2013, and individual volunteers confirmed to deploy to East Africa in or before May 2013 will complete their assignments. We are no longer accepting applications for this program.
