They really care about their employees! It's also a very low stress job.” ********** **Our mission: We feel strongly that all students, regardless of family income, location, school and extra-curricular schedules should have the opportunity to present their strongest college application.

This paid position will be full time, 7:45 AM-4:00 PM Monday through Friday.

Fellow's responsibilities may include rotating into classrooms to provide teachers with planning time and breaks, supervised distance learning for the students, substituting for faculty absences, and assisting with arrival, dismissal, and hallway monitoring. This program is geared toward recent high school graduates and recent college graduates who have a commitment to the Jewish community and an interest in continuing to participate in Jewish education or Jewish communal service following this program. Fellows will have excellent opportunities for learning, mentorship, exploration, and growth in a supportive, pluralistic Jewish community. Smith Fellows will be supervised by the Special Programs and Activities Coordinator and participate in all applicable faculty professional development. The Smith Fellows will have weekly meetings with Division Heads, as well as other administrators within the school to learn about the skills and practices of those in leadership positions at CESJDS.

Responsibilities include writing and editing materials for distribution to the media, drafting opinion pieces, developing social media content, researching client organizations and their issue areas, researching target journalists and compiling media lists, conducting media outreach, aggregating news content, and various clerical duties.
