Australasian Union of Jewish Students

Leadership Development Program

Leadership Development Program

Make your mark...

Each year, AUJS selects its top leadership to travel to the USA, Israel and an additional Diaspora community to intimately explore the challenges facing the Jewish world today. AUJS Leadership Development Program (LDP) exposes its participants to the most innovative ideas and approaches on a variety of different topics affecting Jewish life – including the political, cultural, social and religious – and engages them with extensive practical leadership training. 

During the program, participants undergo training with Hillel International, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and American Jewish Committee (AJC); attend the World Union of Jewish Students' annual congress; meet with prominent Israeli leaders and confront contemporary communal and political issues facing Israel and the Jewish world. In recent years, participants have been exposed to the different and diverse Jewish communities of: France, Austria and Mexico.

AUJS LDP aims to provide its participants with the knowledge, skills and experience to return to their Australian Jewish community and enact positive and visionary change.

Participation on LDP is by application only, and by demonstrating the highest commitment to AUJS and Australian Jewish communal life.
