UF Hillel is looking for a select number of passionate, first year students to participate in our “Leaders of Change” immersive development experience. We are looking for students who have had some leadership experience in the past and want to develop their skills further to become a leader at UF and to help shape Jewish life on campus.

Leaders of Change participants will take part in a kick-off event and four dinner workshops focused on:

  1. Developing interpersonal and professional skills aimed at influencing and inspiring others.

  2. Creating innovative solutions to problems facing UF students and/or the Jewish community.

  3. Providing resources to become a better advocate for yourself and others.

  4. Identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to become a more effective team member and leader.

  5. Learning about different people’s experiences in the jewish community as in order to create a more inclusive environment.

  • UF Hillel’s network of leaders on campus

  • Participants will work with the UF Hillel’s team to create and run a social action based cohort project for students later in the semester
