What Kinds Of Volunteering Opportunities Are Available?

On Tikkun Olam, you'll work to make a difference for the community where you live, in south Tel Aviv or in Jaffa. Although the specific volunteering places vary from term to term, a broad assortment of opportunities will be made available.  Each track has roughly 15-20 different volunteering options, such as:
 

  • Tutoring in public schools in struggling neighborhoods (all ages)
  • Working with disabled populations
  • Tutoring and mentoring in after school programs for youth-at-risk
  • Activities involving both Arab and Jewish youth
  • Work with south Tel Aviv's migrant worker population
  • Work with south Tel Aviv's African refugee and assylum-seeker population 
  • Women's empowerment
  • Adapted sports programs for children with disabilities
  • And much more!

 
You will receive information on the specific volunteering options during the first couple of days of the program. You will then have the opportunity to tour the various volunteering options and, with the guidance of Tikkun Olam staff, you'll choose which projects to take on for the remainder of the program. Participant initiatives beyond the pre-arranged offerings are welcome!
