A JerusalemU leadership training fellowship for gap-year students

The Core18 Fellowship brings together ambitious thinkers and natural leaders to creatively address the challenges currently facing Jewish students on college campuses. Graduates of our program will have the ability to conceive and execute dynamic and game-changing programs to tackle these challenges on their own college campuses.

Leaders Lab

A select group of 20-25 fellows during their gap-year in Israel will experience a unique combination of skill-building, leadership development, and personal empowerment. All graduating fellows will join the growing society of Core18 leaders – sharing, learning and creating breakthrough ventures to tackle the anti-Israel problems facing our college campuses and communities today.

Off the Record:
Bi-monthly meetings where we will hone our leadership abilities to become pro-Israel activists. A diverse faculty will challenge us through interactive workshops to develop our skills in social media, writing op-eds and public speaking, just to name a few. We will meet with leading Israeli change-makers, dialogue with young Israeli activists, and be inspired by dynamic educators. See our list of educators by clicking here.

Shabbatonim:
We go off the beaten track to explore issues from new perspectives with the time to delve deeply into a particular theme. Network-building and idea-sharing are the crux of these shabbatonim. A crucial aspect of the Shabbat is creating an atmosphere respectful of individual Shabbat traditions. During the shabbatonim, the group bonds, develops a shared vision, and has lots of fun! We will have 2-3 during the year coordinated not to interfere with your gap-year schools as best we can.

The Accelerator (10 months): Here fellows will be given the platform to actualize their idea. They will be given access to seed money, personal and professional mentorship, an educational mission to Eastern Europe, and be part of a network of other Core18 leaders through webinars and conferences.
