Practicalities

Each Fellow receives a bi-weekly stipend to cover basic personal needs, and shares an intentional-community budget for common household expenses including food. Rent and utilities are all provided through the program. In addition, each Fellow receives MetroCards for the entire year, ensuring unlimited access to New York City’s excellent public transportation system.

Past Fellows have gone on to a variety of pursuits: graduate school/seminary, other volunteer/Residential Fellowship programs, and/or full-time work. NYSJC’s professional, social and religious affiliations and contacts can help Fellows connect to New York City’s many resources and opportunities.
