  • About

    Israel is a nation with a rich, though tumultuous, history, and the area has fascinated visitors for centuries. However, going to Israel as a volunteer will give you a unique perspective on life in Israel as well as some of the bigger issues modern Israelis face.

  • Program Types
    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.

  • Planning Your Trip
    Volunteer Support

    If you volunteer in Israel through an organization, they should have a support system in place that you can turn to for help, support, and guidance. Your home country's embassy or consulate can be reached in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv for further information as well.

    Should you learn another language before you go?

    Even though many people in Israel speak some English, you will still encounter considerable amounts of Hebrew during your stay, so practice speaking and learning the language a few weeks before your trip. Due to the sensitive nature of these topics, remember to not bring up sensitive subjects like the Holocaust or the Arab-Israeli conflict when in the nation.

  • Health & Safety

    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.
