The Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP) offered in partnership with the Jean and Samuel Frankel Center for Judaic Studies, presents a distinctive educational opportunity for MSW students committed to helping Jewish communities meet 21st-century challenges while also addressing broader social concerns. Students combine study of community systems, theories of social change, and Jewish history and community, with training and experience in community organizing, non-profit management, dialogue facilitation, and coalition building within and across groups.
Approximately six incoming students will be selected to participate in the program each year. The range of professional opportunities available to JCLP graduates include those of program developer, coordinator, and director; organizer of community outreach and development; and agency executive and director.
