Ramah Service Corps
The Ramah Service Corps Fellowship (RSCF) is a year-round leadership program, training Ramah staff members to be community leaders and educators through localized efforts in youth and young adult engagement and camp recruitment. The goal of the RSCF is to reenergize Jewish communities and college campuses by harnessing the energy, talents, enthusiasm, and experience of college-age and post-college staff members to work with families, youth, Ramah alumni and students in a variety of Jewish settings.
RSC Fellows work in a host synagogue, school or community, implementing Ramah-style programs for youth and families, as well as reaching out to prospective Ramah families, recruiting participants for Tichon Ramah Yerushalayim (TRY), and creating programs for young Ramah alumni.
Launched as a pilot in 2010, the program continues to impact communities across North America in its eighth year, with current sites including Baltimore, Nashville, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, and Mexico City.
National Ramah provides these young leaders with the tools, programmatic support, mentoring and training to help them make a significant difference in Jewish educational outreach in their communities, and guide them in recruitment for camp.
