Young World Jewish Relief is a community of young professionals, aged 23 – 35, who come together for events and trips designed to promote socialising and networking whilst learning about the work of World Jewish Relief and raising vital funds to assist our transformative work.
Young World Jewish Relief is a partnership initiative of World Jewish Relief and Genesis Philanthropy Group
Young World Jewish Relief has a proud record of responding quickly to international disasters, launching fundraising evenings to raise money and get vital aid to where it’s most needed.
We organise a wide range of events, appealing to a variety of interests. From boat parties and supper quizzes to panel discussions exploring the world of social-entrepreneurship and contemporary art.
For those who want to learn more about the work of the charity, we host briefing events at exclusive venues such as the House of Lords.
We run bespoke trips once or twice a year to see our life-changing work in Eastern Europe. These trips allow participants to explore life in Eastern Europe and visit World Jewish Relief projects.
Want to decide where exactly your charitable giving goes? Interested in finding out more about how World Jewish Relief works, the people we support around the world and the programmes we run? Join a giving circle with your friends and engage with pressing issues facing the world of international development and raise funds for our projects around the world. Giving circles enable you to hear from individuals shaping the work of World Jewish Relief and collectively shape how your charitable giving is spent. The power is very much in your hands!
Sophia Vasilou, Young Leadership and Fundraising Manager, is always happy to liaise with anyone interested in spearheading an event or wishing to become a young benefactor. Sophia says:
I am excited to be connected to such a great community of young activists wanting to support the work of World Jewish Relief. I would be delighted to hear from you if you have any ideas about an event Young World Jewish Relief could organise or how you might want to get involved with our community.
Applications are now closed for World Jewish Reliefs' Genesis Fellowship Programme 2020.
