Volunteer Programs

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 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.
