Learning Leadership Skills Through Storytelling

Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life , July 26, 2004


More than 300 students from four continents will travel to Honesdale, Penn., next month to enhance their leadership skills and energize their college campuses at Hillel's Charles Schusterman International Student Leaders Assembly.

The 2004 conference, sponsored by Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, will take place August 19-24 at Camp Moshava. Hillel student leaders and professionals will come from all over the United States, Canada, the former Soviet Union, Israel, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Denmark and Sweden.

Inspired by Howard Gardner's book "Leading Minds: An Anatomy of Leadership," in which he defines a leader as a person who can successfully tell his or her story to a receptive audience, students will learn how developing and sharing their own stories can inspire their peers to create vibrant Jewish communities at their schools. Sessions on biblical and Talmudic stories and modern Jewish literature will complement workshops on innovative programming, communication skills and advocacy, among many others.
