Our Israel Ambassadors play a key role in creating a positive Israel environment on campus. As UF Hillel sends the largest delegations to Israel for both Birthright and Onward, Israel Ambassadors serve as the campus spokespeople for these programs using a peer engagement strategy. We are excited to invite Jewish students to share their Israel story with other Jewish Gators through public space engagement, events and recruitment for Israel travel programs.
UF Hillel will look towards their most dedicated ambassadors when it comes time to select our Birthright staff. Becoming an Israel Ambassador does not guarantee an opportunity to staff a Birthright trip. Although the Birthright trip is a 10 day immersive program, we require our staff to commit to the on-campus experience before and after the travel component.
As an Israel Ambassador, you are committing to:
Two hours of public space engagement (tabling and/or flyering) each week
Consistent weekly shifts will be assigned based on Ambassadors’ schedules
Volunteer for UF to Israel events
One individual check in call with Ashley each month
Attend Bi-Weekly Israel Ambassador meetings, meeting time TBD by group
Utilize your personal Birthright recruiter link to promote registration
In order to keep track of your participation as an ambassador, each responsibility is assigned a point value and will be kept track of. Israel Ambassadors should ideally be earning 10 points minimum each month in order to be considered for a Birthright staff position.
1 point - Two hours of public space engagement
1 point - Volunteer at a UF to Israel event
1 point - Monthly check in call with Ashley
2 points - Bi-weekly Israel Ambassador meeting
1 point and $15 - Someone signs up for Birthright using your recruiter link (MUST USE LINK!)
If being an Israel Ambassador excites you, please submit your application by August 28th, 2022.
