StandWithUs is an international and non-partisan Israel education organization that inspires and educates people of all ages and backgrounds about Israel, challenges misinformation, and fights antisemitism.

The high school manager represents StandWithUs and the high school department within their region. You will be a member of a dynamic team of passionate professionals and work with various student and community groups to provide education and resources to high school students and communities. This position is suited for someone who is passionate about empowering the next generation with the knowledge and tools they need to tell Israel’s story and fight antisemitism as a leader and/or upstander in their school and local community while also cultivating their own professional skills in the areas of project management, public speaking, event planning, mentorship, and networking.

The primary responsibilities include managing StandWithUs’ two leadership programs for high school students, the StandWithUs Kenneth Leventhal High School Internship and the Teen Leadership Council.
