SHATIL: The New Israel Fund's Empowerment and Training Center
Founded in 1982 by the New Israel Fund, Shatil ("seedling" in Hebrew), has been on the front lines of the struggle for social change in Israel for twenty years. As a capacity-building center for grassroots social change organizations, Shatil empowers citizens with the tools to improve their lives and communities and builds institutions to promote long-term social change. Shatil's mandate is inclusive and proactive - reaching out to understand constituencies on the economic and geographic periphery and maximizing their strength by facilitating coalitions among them. Shatil's work strengthens Israel's democracy - increasing citizen involvement in the processes of government and the quest for social justice.
We encourage Israeli organizations to post their Volunteer opportunities & Internships on Idelist.
