Training Dates and Information

Training for Shalom Corps exposes participants to various aspects of social advocacy matters. Participants leave each trainings session with a greater understanding of the topic discussed and its connection to jewish life, as well as ways to help through volunteering.

Please note: Shalom Corps members are not required to attend all training sessions. Participants can choose to complete a full 60 hours of service without any training sessions, or use the trainings sessions to offset some of their required service hours.

Training sessions are open to anyone who will find value in the subject matter and are not required to be registered in the Shalom Corps program. Registrants will be sent training links prior to each session.

More information to follow about whether sessions will be held virtually or in person.
