Volunteer With Us
Roll out programming across Australia and NewZealand, with a leadership opportunity unlike any other.
AUJS’ Union Executive runs our
conferences, coordinates our response to
antisemitism and represents Jewish students in our corner of the world.
Be the bridge between campuses in your state on a regional executive – run fantastic parties,
functions and programs! AUJS’ regions – New
South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western
Australia, the ACT, and New Zealand – are an
incredible place to grow your leadership skills and make fantastic friends.
Becoming a campus leader allows you the
opportunity to bring Jewish life onto your
campus, with engaging events. AUJS’ campus
leaders are on the front line, bringing people into an exciting Jewish community on campus.
AUJS’ Leadership Training Summit provided me with the opportunity to bring together the skills and knowledge I have gained over the last 3 years to give our leaders a comprehensive set of fundamental skills that they need to excel in their journeys as AUJS leaders in 2020. I was able to provide a platform for our leaders to meet other Jewish students, who face the same issues and challenges they do, from across Australia and New Zealand, and to have a space to share their ideas and create long-lasting personal and professional relationships.
Having joined the AUJS board in 2017 at only 22 years old, I was able to learn a number of professional skills that many at my age would only learn later in their career. Throughout my time, I learnt about conflict resolution, culture progression, processes and strategy. The board honed my professional attributes and gave me the ability to be assertive in my beliefs. The board provided me with an opportunity that I may otherwise never have experienced as a 22 year old professional.
On LDP, I have been fortunate to meet with a number of Jewish organisations across Israel, Canada, and the United States to learn about the important work they are doing within their Jewish communities and beyond. Through these meetings, I have been exposed to numerous new ideas and learnt tangible skills relating to engaging with and representing Jewish students and fighting Antisemitism on campus. I have been inspired by these organisations and their successes and intend to take the skills and ideas I’ve learnt to implement in AUJS at home.
