Personal Volunteering

personal volunteering

Though teaching will be your top priority, the program also strives to allow each participant a chance to develop other personal interests while contributing to the local community. The Masa ITF with Israel Experience staff will help connect you to a volunteer opportunity that applies your passion and your skills, in fields such as informal education, environment and sustainability, special needs, NGOs and more. Gaining experience in non-profits outside of the classroom will help integrate you into the community and develop more transferable skills. The additional volunteering starts after you’re placed in school and will require 4-5 weekly hours (afternoon/evening).
