Fellows are also expected to promote Michigan Hillel’s Birthright trip to specific communities (i.e., Greek chapter, student group, intramural team, etc.) they're involved in. Fellows will meet individually with Allison weekly to go through who they've registered, recruitment strategies, and next steps.
