Considering a year of service? Concerned for social justice? Does faith play a significant role in your life?
The FaithJustice Fellowship program welcomes applicants of any age, from new college graduates to adults looking for service opportunities or a possible career change. The program runs annually from September – June. Fellows will receive housing, a monthly stipend, and health insurance, while serving at a partner organization in/around Trenton, New Jersey. Work placement options are with a variety of faith-based non-profits that specialize in: social services, youth ministry, and non-profit administration. Applicants must be comfortable with and open to learning the tenets of Catholic Social Teaching. Fellows are given spiritual direction throughout the year and are expected to live in intentional community during the entire program.
If interested, FaithJustice Fellows are welcome to extend their service year and complete the LeaderworX program throughout the summer months.
The application is rolling! Please send a cover letter outlining your qualifications and motivations for applying, resume, 2 references (contact, email, phone), and any questions to Linh Nguyen, email@example.com.
Meet Our Fellow!
In September 2021, we welcomed our newest fellow, Elizabeth Kalfayan! Read more about who she is and what she’ll be doing for her year of service.
Be sure to keep up to date on her blog posts throughout the year!
Liz is originally from Bristol, Connecticut and graduated from Sacred Heart University in 2021 with a degree in English. During undergrad Liz was involved in Campus Ministry, Habitat for Humanity, the band program and many other activities. Her week long spring break trip to North Carolina with Habitat for Humanity strengthened her desire to want to build community, serve and how service can be connected with faith.

Liz was originally drawn to the Leaderworx program at CFJ. After spending the summer with the Leaderworx community and accompanying the youth on their journey, she decided she wanted to continue her time with CFJ with the FaithJustice Fellowship. The Leaderworx program really opened her eyes to her want to learn and grow more on being in solidarity with marginalized communities.
