Over one-third of alumni from the CJPAC Fellowship Program have successfully gone on to work in political offices across levels of government.

Women in Politics

CJPAC offers a variety of programs aimed at advancing the position of women in the political arena, including our Women in Politics Mentorship Program, the round table and speed-mentoring sessions. These events encourage and facilitate discussion about the important roles that women can and play in the political process. The CJPAC Women in Politics Mentorship Program is designed to connect Jewish women (18+) who are interested in becoming more involved in the political process, either personally or professionally, with Jewish mentors who have senior experience in politics, government and communications.

The Women in Politics Mentorship Program is intended to:

CJPAC’s Generation

CJPAC’s Generation: Student Leaders Program is designed specifically for high school students who are politically interested and engaged. This program is open to all Jewish high school students in grades 10-12 (secondary 4 and 5 in Quebec) across Canada. Students gather monthly throughout the school year to meet with a variety of experienced and insightful speakers.

They engage in thoughtful discussions with other young adults that are designed to open the doors to engagement in the democratic process. During these sessions, students enhance their political knowledge, strengthen their voices and hone their skills.

Campaign Training

Campaign training teaches key skills for participating in the Canadian democratic process. These programs educate individuals on how to be effective volunteers on an election campaign. The programs focus on the important aspects of every campaign: canvassing, phone calling, voter identification and “get out the vote” strategies. These seminars are interactive and include role-playing activities that give participants hands-on experience with the various positions they may hold as election volunteers.
