Volunteer in Israel

Find Your Volunteer Program in Israel

Masa Israel’s volunteer programs focus on building strong communities, ensuring the success of at-risk youth, encouraging collaboration and coexistence between local Arab and Jewish populations, teaching English as a foreign language and more. And, while you’re helping others, you’ll be developing leadership skills that last a lifetime.

All of our Israel volunteer programs draw on the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and are guided by the principals of social responsibility and social justice. As a Masa Israel volunteer, you can integrate 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 to make an impact in Israel, while immersing yourself in its unique culture. Programs range from 5-10 months and offer an Israel experience for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 30. We provide participants with highly subsidized grants & scholarships towards their Israel volunteer program.
