Masa Israel Teaching Fellows aims to close the achievement gap in Israel’s education system by placing English-speaking college graduates as English teacher’s aides in schools throughout Israel. The program begins with a group orientation and Hebrew ulpan. Participants will live in small groups in Israel and will be placed in schools as English teacher’s aides.
Participants will teach for a minimum of 25 hours per week in their school and will also choose or design a secondary volunteering project in the community in which they live. Successful applicants must have a college degree, have experience in formal or informal education, have previously demonstrated the ability to excel in a cross-cultural environment and a be willing to be immerse themselves in Israeli culture.
