Tivnu has been without a doubt the best year of my life. I have grown and been able to focus on what I want to do with my life, and it has opened my eyes to new things I would have never thought of doing or even thought possible. Almost everyone in the program and all the staff seemed hand picked to make this gap year absolutely wonderful. While working at Habitat for Humanity, I remember we were tasked with creating a bin to hold the scrap wood that was too small or messed up to use in building the houses, but that could be saved and used as burnable wood. I suggested an idea and my design was fully supported with only minor changes made by the construction trainer so that it would work. It ended up working out so well that we built three more of them. I would very highly recommend this program to almost anyone, especially anyone who enjoys working with their hands and doing social justice. This has been the best year of my life, and I can't wait to see how many more people's lives get improved by this amazing program.
