A number of young people from around the world, including Canada, spent time in Israel on Masa Israel programs. This is the second in a series of stories as told by some of the Canadian participants.
My first thought as I stepped off the plane in Israel following my graduation from college was, "What have I gotten myself into?" But now that I am only weeks away from returning to Canada, I know that enrolling in Masa Israel's Career Israel was one of the best decisions that I ever made.
Having graduated in December 2009 from Humber College with a Child and Youth Work Diploma, I began my job search but could not find anything that suited me. I had always wanted to spend an extended period of time in Israel, so I decided to head to Israel for five months to gain some professional experience.
During my first month with Career Israel, I studied Hebrew. Then I jumped into my internship at Bialik Rogozin School in Tel Aviv, a school for children of Jewish and Arab Israelis, new immigrants, foreign workers, and refugees from Darfur, where I was an English tutor for students, ages 8 to 18.
