GT Hillel Student Group
Hillel offers a variety of formal and informal leadership opportunities. Whether you are looking for a student board position, a paid internship, or you just want to help plan a program.
Student Leadership Opportunities:
Board Members: A board member will have general expectations: attending a certain amount of Hillel events, attending Board meetings, engaging and forming relationships with Jewish students on campus.
Executive Board Members: A board member with a defined job role and higher expectations than a board member. Executive board members are expected to attend all Hillel events, such as Bagel Break, JED, Shabbat, and Metro social events. In addition, they are encouraged to mentor other board members and teach them about their positions, with the goal of cultivating their passion for Hillel and preparing them to be potential executive board members in the future. They also have an initiative of their own choosing that they will focus on throughout the school year. Executive Board Members include the President and Vice President. The President and Vice President must have a year of Hillel leadership experience. They submit a letter of intention to Hillel staff and then they are elected/ voted on by Hillel members.
Initiatives: Each board member is expected to regularly engage Jewish GT Students. In addition to engagement, each board member has a certain job role (Tzedek/Holiday/Women’s programming/IsraelFest) that defines their focused contribution to Hillel. These specialized roles should align with something they want to learn more about and share with the rest of the Hillel community.
