Staffing a Birthright Israel experience with Shorashim is a great opportunity for educators to give back and help ensure that our participants have the highest quality experience. At Shorashim, we work with a number of partners and many of our staff positions are committed to employees and affiliates of these incredible organizations.
Beyond that, we are always looking for oustanding staff to contribute to the once-in-a-lifetime Israel experiences that we provide. Staffing is a privilege and very competitive, for which we are always looking for amazing people to make the experience successful.
You should meet the following requirements to be considered to staff a Birthright Israel experience with Shorashim:
You are at least 23 years old
If you are under the age of 25, you have completed college and/or have lived in Israel
You have participated in an Israel experience other than your Birthright Israel trip
You consider yourself an educator, facilitator, and relationship-builder
You are involved in your Jewish community
You are leader, role model, and team player who is accustomed to working hard, being flexible, and going above and beyond to make any experience the best for those they are supervising
Beyond these requirements, staff are responsible for participating in mandatory training sessions. If Shorashim is hosting a training in your city, you are expected to attend the training. If there is not a training in your city, we will distribute & go over all information with you to ensure that you are prepared for this role.
Please note that recruting a certain number of participants to travel on Birthright Israel with Shorashim does not lead to a guaranteed staffing position. Our staff are passionate about helping more people travel on this experience with us and we encourage staff to be involved in this process.
