Live in Jerusalem, make new friends from around the world, and travel around Israel to explore historical, political, cultural, and social issues. Meet the change-makers, thought-leaders, activists, and educators working to improve Israeli society and be a part of the Institute for Youth Leaders (Hebrew: Machon Le’Madrichei Chutz La’Aretz), a leading training program of the Jewish Agency for Israel. 




Head to Haifa to integrate deeper into Israeli society: experience social, cultural and political issues first-hand as we meet and volunteer with Israelis working in communal and social action projects across the city that improve the lives of Israeli Jewish and Arab residents. Practice your Hebrew as you make friends with young Israelis from Noar Telem, the Israeli Progressive youth movement.
