Ella Issacharoff, Communications Fellow

National Leadership Program, Summer 2017

Ella Issacharoff

Ella Issacharoff was a Communications Fellow with RespectAbility, where she worked on changing the narrative in Hollywood to ensure accurate and positive cultural media portrayals of people with disabilities. For several years, she has worked in the education field in Israel. During her two years of National Service (2013-2015), Issacharoff lived and worked in a distressed agricultural community located on the border between Israel and Jordan. There, she implemented informal educational programs for the youth of the community, working intensively with families that had economic and social needs.

Issacharoff also worked in the educational field in various international locations. In 2016, she spent a month in Cape Town, South Africa while volunteering in a township school. There, she was an English teacher for third-grade children. Some of the children were homeless, came from families with criminal backgrounds and/or had AIDS. Prior to joining RespectAbility, Issacharoff was working in Jerusalem at an elementary school where she managed the third to sixth grade after-school program.

Issacharoff profiled Dan Hazelwood and William Daroff, two guest speakers for the 2017 Summer Fellowship. Read them on our website:
