The Joshua Institute leadership accelerator (JI) is an advanced leadership and skill development experience for Toronto’s Jewish leaders.
The 18-month program is grounded in leading theory and practice and is designed to cultivate the next generation of Jewish community leaders. JI participants are ages 25-45, are passionate about the Jewish community, and want to make a difference in Toronto. They are committed to exploring UJA’s role in the community, UJA’s organizational priorities, and the impact philanthropy has in our city and throughout the Jewish world.
JI is powered by UJA Genesis, a new engagement platform for people looking to connect to the community in a meaningful way.
If you are interested in joining a future cohort of JI leaders, please contact Jodi Katzeff, Director of Engagement, UJA Genesis at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All applicants must submit an application and CV in order to be considered for the program.
We are looking for candidates who will help form a diverse cohort where participants can learn from one another.
It is important to note that emerging leaders of all professions, inside and outside of the Jewish community, are encouraged to apply.
The Joshua Institute program is infused with leadership theory and opportunities for hands-on learning; it encourages collaboration among cohort members and welcomes emerging leaders of all backgrounds. Participants will be exposed to community problems through case studies, so they can grapple with the tensions that exist between theory and the pragmatic realities of the Jewish communal leadership space.
Designed to accommodate demanding schedules, the curriculum is divided into three modules.
JI 2019 will consist of both in-person and remote sessions. All in-person sessions will be held on evenings or weekends:
