Way More Israel (WMI) is an innovative program that offers the experience of living and working in Israel that takes you beyond being a tourist. On Way More Israel, you will spend your first month in the heart of Jerusalem – the mystical, magical Old City. You’ll experience first-hand the history, culture and holidays while getting acclimated to life in Israel. You’ll begin daily Ulpan, go on trips and meet both Israeli peers and influential people.
The next three months of WMI concentrate on full-time volunteering or interning in your chosen field. You will get the internship/volunteer placement that will look great on your resume, while being meaningful and productive. There are 4 days a week of interning/ volunteering and once a week you will have group volunteering and/or trips around the country to discover a side of Israel you likely have never heard about.
The fifth month of Way More Israel features an ecological farm experience. You’ll learn agricultural techniques and principles in a rural setting. You’ll meet Israelis and people from around the world who care deeply about the environment.
What makes Way More Israel different? You’ll go beyond the typical: you’ll be welcomed into the homes of every type of Old City resident (including sampling their ethnic cuisine), you’ll have unique cultural encounters in Jerusalem and around Israel (including trips to places tourists don’t visit) while you focus on Hebrew skills and advancing your career/volunteering for a worthy cause. You’ll meet so many different people, get to know our awesome staff, and learn about yourself and Israel. A total experience, WMI will stimulate all your senses as you see, feel, taste, smell and hear an extraordinary, unique Israel.
