Jewish Family Service is a client-centered, impact-driven organization working to build a stronger, healthier, more resilient San Diego. The JFS Marketing Department is responsible for communicating the agency’s impact to clients, volunteers, donors, staff, and the wider public through online and print media.
Goal of Position:

Along the way, you’ll gain hands-on experience in writing, research, project coordination, and social media management-and build an impressive portfolio for your next job interview. (You’ll also laugh a lot and maybe learn some new dance moves.)
