The following internships are available for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Social Media Intern:



  • Create engaging, viral, and strategic content for Hillel 818’s social media accounts

  • Assist in creating social media plan & calendar

  • Design graphics for social media and newsletters

  • Work on external promotions and public relations

  • Track analytics and give suggestions for ways to improve Hillel’s social media engagement

  • Target specific audiences via social media such as 1st year students, transfer students, young alumni, etc.

  • Other projects as necessary



Maybe you are considering a future in digital marketing and communications, or maybe you just love social media. Either way, you’ve got the skills to make Hillel 818 go viral, and the creativity and passion to help Hillel 818 become a (relatively) insta-famous, Tik-Tok dancin’ fool. You’re also a storyteller, who’s excited to maximize social media to share Hillel 818’s story with more students, more alumni, and more parents. Ideal candidates also have some graphic design, photo editing, and video editing skills.

WHO YOU REPORT TO: Julia Martini - Communications Coordinator

Development Intern:



  • Work closely with our Executive Director and Associate Director on fundraising campaigns such as holiday campaigns, Giving Tuesday, our student Phone-A-Thon and more! 

  • Identify students and alumni whose stories we haven’t told yet, and then interview them to create profiles for us to feature. 

  • Help with outreach to families 

  • Input as well as clean up donor data in our development database - Little Green Light

  • Help with donor prospect research

  • Think of new and exciting ways to engage young alumni, recent graduate, and families



Trustworthy, hard working, self-motivated, independent, and organized. This position may be best suited for somebody who’s interested in fundraising, business, non-profit work, project management, or networking, but we will consider anyone with a good work-ethic, who’s willing to roll up their sleeves and get into the weeds of our donor databases.

WHO YOU REPORT TO: Evan Taksar Levental - Associate Director & Matt Baram - Executive Director

zCLUB Programming and Engagement Intern:



  • Run one of our new digital zClubs - online interest groups that will meet via zoom once a week, twice a month, or once a month depending on the group. Running a zClub means working independently or with a Hillel staff person to plan and run a 30-60 minute zoom program.

    • Student run zClubs will include Hillel 818 staples like: 

      • PCH (Persian Club at Hillel)

      • RSJ (Russian Speaking Jews)

      • MFI (Matadors for Israel)

      • Mishelanu (Hebrew speaking club)

      • CSUN, Pierce, and LAVC weekly lunch groups
        Ohmanut (Jewish arts)

    • We also anticipate a number of new interest group based zClubs:

      • Movie Club

      • Book Club

      • Cooking Club

      • Bachelor recaps

      • Games

      • You may certainly (and are encouraged to!) propose a zClub not currently on our list!

  • Leverage personal networks and recruit students to attend zClub programming

  • Meet regularly with new zClub attendees and prospective students via virtual coffee conversations

  • Attend and participate in supervision meetings with the Manager of Student Engagement

  • Act as a Hillel 818 ambassador focused on promoting and attending events through Hillel 818 



You have a hobby, interest, or passion that you want to share with the rest of the Hillel 818 community. You’re excited by meeting new people and not afraid to reach out to someone you don’t know. You’re confident that as “CEO” of your own zClub, you’re going to build an interest group that regularly has 8-12 attendees. You’re dedicated to making this group succeed, and are excited to recruit new attendees and build relationships.


WHO YOU REPORT TO: Ally Gerstley - Manager of Student Engagement
