Israel Service Fellows is an incredible 10-month service-learning program for a select group of college graduates. Israel Service Fellows work on informal education, community development and empowerment projects. The fellowship includes the challenge of facilitating programming in informal educational settings for a diverse group of Jewish, Arab, and Druze at-risk youth, while undertaking an additional community project for the benefit of the local community. Some of the activities as well as service projects will be done together with a parallel group of Israelis in order to maximize your Israel experience and exposure to Israel. Fellows will live and work together in small groups in Akko, a city just north of Haifa, Israel. Aside from a service placement, all Fellows participate in ongoing professional training, intensive Hebrew study, and trips throughout Israel.
Fellows receive health insurance, accommodations in furnished apartments, a monthly stipend of 1,300 NIS, and a flight reimbursement of up to 5,000 NIS.
