How do you inspire young Jewish leaders? Video blogger Aaron Herman takes a look at the Collegiate Leadership Internship Program (CLIP).
CLIP is a paid summer internship experience in New York City that seeks to foster and develop professional and lay leadership in the Jewish community. Housed at the Bronfman Center for Jewish Student Life at NYU, CLIP matches undergraduate students who have an interest in Jewish life and culture with engaging, substantive internships at a variety of for-profit, non-profit, and Jewish communal organizations, where they are provided with mentorship and guided development of new skills. Upon completion of the summer, interns receive a $2,200 stipend.
In addition to spending four days a week engaged in a professional work environment, interns gather together once a week for meaningful, peer-driven educational seminars, networking with some of the city's best and brightest leaders. Seminars cover topics such as identity and community building, leadership training, and professional development.
