Hillel Ambassadors

Why be an Ambassador? 

As a Hillel Ambassador, you are leading in strengthening the Jewish community on Penn State’s campus. Being an Ambassador gives you the ability to help people find their place on campus, strengthen the Jewish communities we have and the networks between them, and learn essential leadership skills in networking and team building that will carry through future opportunities. This leadership role is a great opportunity for anyone who is passionate about bringing Jewish students together and inclusivity.

What is an Ambassador? 

Hillel Ambassadors work hand in hand with the Student Executive Board in order to foster thriving communities at Penn State Hillel. Student engagement and outreach is the main goal of the position. As an Ambassador, you are a key component of making Jewish opportunities, experiences, and events happen on campus.

Responsibilities will include (but are not limited to): 

  • Execute events that foster Jewish community
  • Establishing at least one new community within Hillel based on a passion you have (for example, a cooking community, hiking community, etc. See a complete of our already established communities here)
  • Commit to being an active member of the Hillel community by participating in Hillel related events as well as leadership meetings like Student Leadership Empowerment Dinners (SLED) and Leadership Council.
  • Attend biweekly Ambassador Meetings along with the student Vice President.

What will you gain from this leadership role? 

The Ambassador Program is a great leadership role to help students find your strengths as a leader on campus and in the Jewish community, and focus your skills in creating real impacts. This position will help you develop transferable skills, such as communication, community building, and facilitation. This is a great opportunity for students who are looking to begin and explore their leadership journey.
