From joining us as a student on Israel Uncovered, to three amazing years as a professional, Maddi Jackson reflects on her time with The David Project as she continues onto the next phase of her career.
When Jackie participated on Israel Uncovered, she realized that people of different backgrounds found their own unique connection to the country. It was through that realization that she began to appreciate Israel in a whole new light.
Katie Glickman, a National Student Board member from Queens College, used to wonder if her Israel advocacy could translate to her career interests. That’s when she finally realized the importance of processing.
Annmarie Gajdos, a National Student Board member from Baruch College, never expected Israel to be such an important part of her college career. Traveling to Israel with The David Project helped her realize the power of bridge building and bringing communities together.
“The streets are alive. Dense crowds of people mill about the alleyways between shops selling fresh breads, varieties of spices which put color wheels to shame, fruit-flavored gummy candies, and pomegranates larger than softballs.”
The David Project empowers student leaders to build mutually beneficial and enduring partnerships with diverse student organizations so that the pro-Israel community is integrated and valued on campus.
what we do
The David Project works with 250 interns on 45 campuses across the United States who cultivate allies across campus by building genuine and lasting relationships.
HOW we do it
We train students on how to talk about Israel through forming genuine and last relationships. We call this Relational Advocacy.
