  • Develop one-on-one relationships to involve these students in ongoing programs and leadership roles.
  • Plan and lead a weekly fellowship for students, mentoring and nurturing them to become engagers and innovators on campus.
  • Collaborate with other Program Team members to engage freshmen and students involved with Greek life.
  • Run a large-scale, signature event for Maryland Hillel (e.g. Welcome Week, Hanukkah Party, Shabbat Across Maryland, a new program you create).
  • Staff Birthright Israel and Alternative Break trips during winter, spring, and/or summer breaks.
  • Develop key partnerships with professionals from the university's student life staff to promote positive positioning of Maryland Hillel in the university landscape.

What You'll Bring to the Role:

  • Energy, enthusiasm, and a self-driven motivation.
  • Outgoing and confident personality.
  • Creative spirit with the capacity for effective teamwork.
  • Knack for brainstorming events, trying new ideas, and taking risks.
  • Excellent organizational, written, and verbal communication skills.
  • Familiarity with Jewish values and excitement to continue developing your own relationship to Judaism.
  • A Bachelor's degree or equivalent is required.

What You'll Get:

  • Competitive salary in the non-profit marketplace.
  • Comprehensive benefits package, including health insurance, Group Supplemental Retirement Annuity (GSRA), pension plan, life insurance, Long Term Disability (LTD), Flexible Spending Plan, generous vacation/sick time, and parental leave.
  • Flexible work hours.
  • Travel opportunities (national and abroad).
