MITF Career Development Opportunities Outside the Classroom

What are Career Development opportunities? In addition to teaching English, MITF fellows volunteer 5 weekly hours with the goal of connecting with the community in spaces outside of the classroom and to reflect the passions and skills of the teaching fellows. 

MITF Israeli coordinators will support fellows in choosing or designing their personalized volunteer project on-the-ground. OR you can choose from one of our exclusive volunteer tracks and have your project finalized before your arrival. 

Choose from one of our diverse career development opportunities working with the special needs or LGBTQ+ populations, or with an NGO! 

*Please note that these career development opportunities are associated with specific cities.
