The Internet is My Billboard

I’ve worked for Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life for six years, the first four of which were spent at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Working with college students taught me many things, among them the importance of standing out in the crowd. Every day there were organizations recruiting in the center of campus, students handing out flyers to advertise events by the dining hall, and ads in the school newspaper. Everyone wanted to be heard. As a result some voices were lost.

Ask Big Questions named to Slingshot Guide!

Big news: Ask Big Questions is among 50 innovative organizations and initiatives recognized in the 2012-13 Slingshot Guide. Since it began in 2005, Slingshot has chosen some of the most innovative and exciting people and projects in the Jewish not-for-profit and philanthropic world. Our 150+ student fellows, Hillel colleagues around the country, and all of you who support our work share in this honor. Thank you!

Request for Proposals: Program Evaluation

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life seeks a program evaluator to help Ask Big Questions staff and key stakeholders better understand the impact of Ask Big Questions, in ways that will guide future program development, and assist in the engagement of additional supporters.
