JPAC is the largest single-state coalition of Jewish organizations in the nation. Comprised of 30 leading Jewish community organizations – including Jewish Federations, Jewish Community Relations Councils, Jewish Family Service agencies, and others – we advocate in Sacramento on behalf of the Jewish community’s concerns and broadly shared values. Our member organizations collectively serve hundreds of thousands of Californians of all backgrounds and represent the interests of California’s 1.2 million Jews.

    • Conduct outreach to Hillel staff and Jewish student leaders on California college campuses to familiarize Jewish students with JPAC’s priorities and organize their participation in JPAC programming.

    • Act as the liaison between JPAC and its Student Fellows
    • Create and disseminate marketing materials for social media, using Canva or similar software.
    • Create and maintain a social media calendar and approval process for JPAC; post on social media roughly once a week; work with JPAC staff to obtain relevant and quality content for posts.
    • Assist with event planning and logistics at programs and Board Meetings.
    • Provide research and administrative support on projects as assigned.
    • Attend JPAC Board meetings (virtual and in-person, if possible) and JPAC Advocacy Day 2023 in Sacramento (in person) – costs will be covered.

The Intern reports to the Program Manager, and works directly with the Executive Director on certain projects. The internship offers no compensation or payment for any services conducted, outside of the acquisition of knowledge, education, and experience. The Intern will generally be expected to work remotely out of their home for approximately 5 hours a week throughout the term of September 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023.
