Israel is a nation with a rich history. It has been a top travel destination for people for centuries due to its rich religious history. It is a holy destination and has places of worship for three religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Israel is filled with interesting museums, rich architecture, and of course, numerous places of worship.
Teach English: Israel is a mostly Jewish nation, with a considerable population of Arabs. The main languages spoken in the nation are thus Hebrew and Arabic. There is thus a need for volunteers to teach English as most English teachers in Israel don't speak very good English.
Elderly Care: Israel has a relatively large elderly population. There are many nursing homes for the elderly and thus opportunities for volunteers. As a volunteer, you will work in elderly homes, helping with administrative tasks and creating activities and taking care of residents.
Community Development: Israel has many varying projects that volunteers work on. As a volunteer working in community development, you will have an opportunity to work on a variety of projects while in the nation. The variety of projects include working extensively with students in schools and community centers, helping beautify parks, and helping to build and paint bomb shelters.
There are no recommended vaccinations for travel to Israel. However, it is recommended that you carry insect repellents if you travel in the summer or fall due to the presence of the West Nile Virus. For more information visit MD Travel Health.
