Volunteering in Israel can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life – for such a small country, you’d be surprised at the variety of volunteer opportunities available to you.  All of our Israel volunteer programs draw on the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and are guided by the principles of social responsibility and social justice.

On a Masa volunteer program, you get the opportunity to combine service with the exploration of Israel as you work to create a more just society. Our Israel volunteer and service-learning experiences connect you to meaningful opportunities through which you can make an impact in Israel while immersing yourself in its unique culture. With an Israel volunteer program, you get to make an impact within a community of your choice, meet people from around the world who have the same interests as you, network with leaders in your field of interest, and boost your resume for the job market.

Israel volunteer Programs range from 5-10 months and offer an Israel experience for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 30. We provide our Masa Fellows with highly subsidized grants & scholarships toward their Israel volunteer program.
