Jewish Funds for Justice – Selah Leadership Program
In 2008, Jewish Funds for Justice received funding from the Nathan Cummings Foundation to redesign their Selah Leadership Program. Selah staff wanted to strengthen the program and its contribution to the Jewish social justice movement. They envisioned providing participants with leadership training, opportunities for social networking and a focus on collaboration.
Informing Change was hired to measure the program’s impact in a number of areas:
- Individual leadership
- Organizational change
- Network and movement building
- The role of Jewish values in social justice leadership development
The evaluation findings will inform Selah’s staff, Advisory Board and funders on the best practices for implementing leadership trainings and developing participant networks.
