The Together, Restoring their Names Fellowship is a rewarding two semester opportunity for students of all backgrounds.
Travel the world
Some of the most engaged Together, Restoring their Names Fellows will be selected for spots on our subsidized Holocaust service-learning trips around the world. This year Together, Restoring their Names will be leading trips to The Netherlands during winter break, and Washington, D.C. during the fall semester.
Shape your experience
At the beginning of your Fellowship, you will meet with your peers and group leaders to plan and organize the Holocaust memory service-learning projects which you want to take part in. Opportunities include working directly with local Holocaust survivors, engaging students on your campus with innovative Holocaust programming, and brainstorming your own ideas on how to restore the names of victims.
Fellows are expected to meet goals to heighten the impact of their work. We will work together to build goals for each individual fellow which fits in their schedule and plays into their strengths and interests. Possible goals include:
Implementing three on-campus Holocaust events, partnering with other campus groups
Writing a short weekly article for our Reflections page
Hold three off campus Holocaust related events with senior citizens, youth groups, or new immigrants
Plan and implement a large community event for Yom HaShoah in April 2018
Curate Holocaust Newspaper Articles with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum
Meet fundraising goals for charities which work directly with Holocaust survivors
Be trained and lead tours at New England Holocaust Memorial - recruit two non Jewish school groups to visit
Drive or escort survivors for medical visits, social events, and other transportation needs on rolling basis
Work with Holocaust writers to research for their publications
Volunteer with young students at the FRCS Holocaust Stamps Project
Build a Holocaust program resource guide
Have your own idea? We can help bring it to life!
Develop leadership and communication skills
In today's competitive job market, experienced and skilled students are at the forefront of employer demand. During the fellowship, you will work to develop marketable skills. Throughout your experience, you can work with an accomplished writer to publish your thoughts in our Reflections blog, as well as in the news media. At the end of your Fellowship, you and your fellowship team will have the opportunity to work with an experienced event organizer to plan, promote, and lead an incredible intercampus event to spread your knowledge to students across the Boston area.
No time? No problem! We can work together to tailor the Fellowship for your busy schedule.
