The program begins with a month of training including Hebrew ulpan and pedagogical training.

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.
Israel Way's flagship volunteer program was first established in the city of Ramle-Lod five years ago. A mixed population town with Arab and Jewish Israelis living in co-existence, Ramle is your number one destination to make a deep impact and change the world through education. Once the capital city of Israel, Ramle is considered the hub of Israel, conveniently located between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
Known to be Israels fifth largest city conveniently located on the Mediterranean coast, Ashdod has a population of over 200,000 people. Many of these people are immigrants from countries such as Morocco, Egypt, Romania, Georgia, Former Soviet Union, Ethiopia, France and Argentina. Over 90% of Ashdod's population is Jewish. Participants will live a 5 minute walk to the beach as well as enjoy the close proximity to Tel Aviv!
