Internships +Hillel Mentorship Opportunities 
1. Phone-A-Thon Internship - Penn State Hillel's Phone-a-Thon is a year-long, student-led fundraising initiative. The Phone-A-Thon internship provides an opportunity to gain professional, leadership and presentation skills. As a Student Caller, you play an integral role in helping Penn State Hillel achieve its mission by reaching out to alumni, parents and general supporters of our organization to raise money over the phone.

The Link! ProgramPenn State Hillel invites you to join our yearlong engagement initiative, the Link Program. In addition to various events throughout the year, the Link Program involves a peer mentorship component. New incoming students who register for the program are known are matched by interest with returning students. These people will help to serve as *links* to all things Penn State.
