Description: 
We are pleased to announce eight collegiate BYFI alumni as the new cohort of BYFI-Repair Campus Ambassadors. On January 7th, they will join together for their second seminar as ambassadors. We recently launched the second year of this initiative, which is an exciting partnership between BYFI and Repair the World, an organization focused on promoting service as a Jewish value. The Ambassadors were selected to participate in ten months of learning and skill-building aimed at enhancing service on their campuses. Led by BYFI faculty and educational consultant Elizabeth Ochs (BYFI '01), the Ambassadors will come together three times each year to learn together about creating sustainable and high impact service initiatives and reflecting how they connect to their Jewish identities.
