Urban Mitzvah Corps New Jersey (UMC) offers exciting social justice opportunities in and around New Brunswick, NJ. UMC provides participants with an authentic opportunity to explore their Jewish identities through the lens of social justice and engagement with new communities. Participants and staff reside in the safe and culturally rich environment of the Rutgers University - New Brunswick Campus neighborhood.

Take advantage of our longstanding relationships with local organizations through volunteer efforts and intense hands-on learning. Each participant will have the opportunity to select which volunteer experience best suites their interests, in areas of focus such as engaging in food and economic justice, making a difference in the lives of people with mental and physical disabilities, the underprivileged, and the elderly. Evenings are devoted to strengthening the community and deepening the program's connection to Jewish values through social and educational learning.
