The IACT Coordinator will work with students prior to their departure and upon their return from their Birthright Israel experiences developing activities to engage students in Jewish life on campus, by encouraging them to become involved as leaders and participants in student-organized Jewish programming and groups, and by directing them to and facilitating their participation in existing Israel-related opportunities on and off campus. IACT Coordinators are excited to engage students in Israel and in Jewish conversations, and have a deep understanding of Jewish identity as a framework for shaping meaning, value and purpose in the lives of emerging adults. They wake up each day (or at least most!) genuinely excited and enthusiastic to help students explore, experience, and create vibrant connections to Israel and Jewish Life. This is so much more than your average 9-to-5.
The position starts on August 1, 2023.
