Join Shalom Corps at Focal Point (October 14-15), the premier Jewish convening on global responsibility, to network with and be inspired by fellow champions of global Jewish service as we explore the impact of COVID-19 on our field.
Shalom Corps and OLAM are excited to partner on this convening and, in particular, on a special plenary session: “Pause With Purpose: The Future of Impactful Global Service.”
When international travel came to a halt in March, global Jewish service programs in the developing world had to recall volunteers and cancel upcoming cohorts. Today, most remain on hiatus, uncertain when in-person operations can resume. This plenary session explores how we can take advantage of the current pause in global service programs to reevaluate and build new models that are more ethical, sustainable, and meaningful for volunteers and local community members alike.

Our very own CFO, Aviva, will be moderating a session on October 15th. Do not miss out!
