At the start of each academic year, many of our partners in the Jewish community recruit student volunteers as ambassadors, fellows, and interns. These are fantastic opportunities to work for the causes you believe in, build your voice, and achieve change. Often, they will offer sessions and workshops which will build your campaigning skills and enhance your CV. Gaining these skills early and alongside your studies will set you up for a great start! Keep your eyes peeled for the opportunities below:
René Cassin Ambassadorship:
An enriching, leadership-oriented initiative to empower Jewish human rights activists at University. The programme equips students with the knowledge, skills, and networks to advocate and campaign for change in human rights areas which resonate with Jewish values.
René Cassin Internship and Work Experience:
René Cassin are looking for students to support our campaigns and education work. The internship programme fully integrates you into all areas of work, including contributing directly to the human rights conversation in government and civil society, as well as within the Jewish community.
Brand-new 7 month fellowship programme for university students and young professionals. It is geared towards those looking for a career in the charity and development sectors. Sessions will include networking, peer-led learning, and high-profile guest speakers.
Tzedek are looking for students to take on as interns on an ad-hoc basis. This year, this is also available virtually. Interns will be integrated into the organisation and get first-hand experience of working in the NGO sector.
Council of Christian and Jews Campus Leadership Scheme:
This encourages interfaith initiatives on campus. The events which are organised by the student leaders encourage CCJ’s vision of promoting understanding, valuing difference, demonstrating empathy and respect and challenging prejudices, specifically in a university context. You will be mentored through this initiative and will receive funding each semester to run your chosen initiatives.
