Leadership Development Program (LDP):
AUJS selects its top leaders to travel to different communities to explore the challenges facing the Jewish world today. In the past places have included Israel, the USA and more. LDP equips participants with innovative ideas and strategies for tackling these challenges that they can bring home to shape our local Jewish community.
Susan Wakil Fellowship
The SWF is a selective student leadership program aimed at empowering a generation of Jewish leaders to make a positive change in Australian society.
Throughout the course of the year, Fellows will be given the tools and skills to design and execute social action initiatives aimed at bringing about the change they want to see in Australian civic society. Fellows attend multiple interstate conferences and retreats, as well as a series of fortnightly workshops and mentorship relationships with industry leaders and innovators.
LTS brings together AUJS leaders from across Australasia for a 3-day immersive leadership development experience. LTS provides leaders with the fundamental skills and knowledge that they need to run successful events, operate effectively as a team and combat challenges on campus. It also provides leaders with a great opportunity to meet people from overseas and interstate.
