Who We Are and Your Opportunity for Impact

RootOne is a “Jewish start-up” – an innovative, dynamic initiative that is pro-actively inspiring a generation of teens to be more confident and proud Jews as they enter the next stage of their lives. RootOne, along with its youth serving organization grantee partners, redefine and deepen the typical teen Israel summer trip experience so that its impact is long-lasting. It does so by reducing the cost of participation, and by diversifying Israel experiences to make them more accessible to a wider audience of Jewish teens.

We know that an intentionally designed and well-facilitated immersive experience in Israel has the capacity to breathe vitality, passion and commitment among Jewish teens that could directly impact the future landscape of North American Jewish life. It provides a framework that allows Jewish teens to explore many of the issues that matter most to them as adolescents and as young Jews. Research shows that outside of Jewish day school (which only a small percentage of Jewish teens in North America attend), there is no greater impact on a young person’s Jewish identity formation than an Israel trip with their peers.

An Israel experience increases the likelihood of Jewish teens being more committed to their Jewish community in the long term, maintaining personal relationships with other Jews, and assuming leadership roles in the world. At a time when Jewish voices on campus need to be heard more than ever, the Israel experience has proven to increase the connections of young Jews to their fellow Jews and greatly enhance their connection to Israel. At scale, this experience can radically transform the trajectory of North American Jewry. Learn more at www.RootOne.org.

What You Will Do

RootOne administers financial support via grants to Youth Serving Organizations, Jewish Residential Camps, Jewish Federations, and other grantees responsible for organizing top tier Israel experiences for Jewish teens. Additionally, RootOne offers an open Request for Proposal (RFP) to bring on new grantees and add to the number of teens impacted by this initiative.

RootOne at The Jewish Education Project seeks a full-time methodical and strategic Grants Manager to further develop and manage its funding and grants processes as the program grows. Candidates with diverse racial, cultural, educational, and experiential backgrounds are urged to apply.

Reporting to the Director of Strategy and Operations, the Grants Manager will optimize RootOne’s year-old grants process, utilizing new custom software to manage the details and deadlines of each grant and each grantee. S/he/they will also build collegial and productive relationships with key grantee representatives based on trust, clarity of expectations and mutual respect.
