Way More Israel is a unique 5-month program where you will have an authentic Israel experience as you develop your own unique skills and interests. You’ll spend the first month living in Jerusalem’s Old City, improving your Hebrew skills and getting to know places and people around you. You’ll discover the meaning and significance of heritage and history through tours, workshops, hands-on learning, group volunteer projects and cultural activities. For the second month, you’ll travel to a kibbutz where you will continue to learn Hebrew, and have a chance to really contribute to communal life. You’ll pick up some organic farming techniques and/or work in a kibbutz factory. You’ll then return to Jerusalem for the last three months where you’ll be working or volunteering in your chosen field. Jerusalem has some of the best opportunities to gain valuable experience working in companies (over 600 to choose from) or making a real difference at the many non-profit organizations.

Additionally, you will volunteer 5 hours a week outside the classroom, in an organization of your choosing within the community.
