The JFRC is led by its Director, Dr. Eric Apfelstadt, and Dr. Rebecca Edwards, the Vice-Director. Mr. Todd Waller serves as the Dean of Students, and he is assisted by several Student Life Assistants, known as SLAs.

The SLAs are chosen from a wide field of applicants by their merits and the skills that they bring with them to the Center. They serve for a period of one to two years.

Students at the JFRC attend classes four days a week, and most travel during the weekends to various cities in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, and Northern Africa. Some of the trips are planned by the students themselves and their friends, while other trips are planned by the SLAs for educational reasons. These 'study trips' are often to places like Pompeii, Northern Ireland, and Venice. Pompeii is a ruined Roman city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania. ...
