College students want to change the world.
Do you have big, bold, creative ideas that get other people excited?
Are you great at talking to strangers and LOVE meeting new people?
Do you want to create new initiatives on campus to reach and build relationships with uninvolved students?
If you had unlimited resources, what new idea or initiative would you bring to the Brooklyn Jewish community? Who would it reach that we aren’t currently reaching? What value would it add to Jewish life?
The BJX Fellow is charged with building relationships with 60 uninvolved Jewish students on campus. Fellows strive to understand students’ interests, passions, and aspirations – and connect them to opportunities that they may find meaningful and engaging. Fellows are given a budget to plan initiatives that identify them as relevant and Jewish, enable them to meet uninvolved Jewish students and follow-up with them in an authentic, comfortable, and open way. Initiatives have the dual purpose of attracting uninvolved students and advancing Jewish values.
