The goal of Onward Israel is to provide participants with an immersive and transformative resume building experience in Israel, featuring opportunities such as internships, service learning, academic courses and fellowships.
Onward Israel offers a competitive and attractive venue for young people seeking such experiences at affordable prices, and for time periods ranging from six to ten weeks. While meeting the individual needs of the participants and allowing them to advance their resumes, Onward Israel programs will also feature inspiring educational modules, with special attention dedicated to activism opportunities within local communities and institutions after program completion and to the development of a deeper understanding of Israel and enhanced Jewish identity and commitment.
Masa Israel, a public-service organization founded by the Prime Minister’s Office of the Government of Israel, together with The Jewish Agency for Israel, is the leading organization in the long term Israel experience space with a diverse portfolio of 2-12-month study, service, and career development programs for young Jews (18-30). Masa’s transformational, authentic Israel experiences, among the best in the international experience space, empower participants to develop as individuals, while also developing a robust global professional network that includes Israelis and Jews from around the world. Masa Israel offers a very large range of programs, among them are paid and non-paid internships, volunteer work and study abroad programs.
Birthright Israel began with a bold idea—offering a free, life-changing, 10-day trip to Israel to young Jewish adults between the ages of 18 and 26—and in doing so, transform the Jewish future. Birthright Israel aims to strengthen Jewish identity, build a lasting bond with the land and people of Israel, and reinforce the solidarity of Jewish people worldwide.
