The Springboard Fellowship offers four separate tracks, each centered around a separate theme that guides the fellow’s work.
Reimagine and redesign Jewish life on campus. As an Innovation Specialist, you’ll be trained in design thinking methodology to spark new ideas, connect with students, and infuse creativity into all aspects of Hillel’s work.
The Springboard Fellowship has far exceeded my expectations! I've learned so much about my own personal work-style through our professional development sessions, which has helped to shape my future career goals.
Bring Jewish learning to life on campus as an Ezra Jewish Education Specialist. You’ll be trained in pluralistic and experiential Jewish education techniques to infuse Jewish learning into your work as an engagement professional.
This is meaningful, relationship-based work. I get to meet people where they are in their journey and explore who I am as a Jewish young adult.
Pioneer and redefine what it means to build a deep and meaningful community as an Intrapreneurship Specialist. Grow as a leader and changemaker through Adaptive Leadership training, and hone your passions to transform Jewish life on campus.
The Springboard Fellowship allowed me to explore my passions and create a personalized role on campus. I would not be where I am today if not for the tools I learned as a Springboard Fellow.
Participants will have the opportunity to deepen their professional competencies and experience immersive Jewish learning through a series of in-person and virtual trainings. Fellows will attend various conferences throughout the year, learn through year-round video conferences and receive one-on-one coaching and mentorship from experienced Hillel professionals and outside facilitators.
Fellows supercharge learning and growth through a personalized learning plan. You might do immersive learning and travel between the first and second years of the program, course work throughout your two years from prestigious learning partners, or some combination of the two. Every fellow comes into the program excited to learn different skills and tools. Significant funds are available.
In addition to compelling work and top-notch training, Springboard fellows receive a competitive annual salary, a comprehensive benefits package, and paid vacation time. By joining the Springboard fellowship program, fellows will also benefit from a vast professional network and will be supported at every stage during and after the fellowship program.
