Our most immersive program puts fellows at the forefront of social issues facing Israel and equips them with the tools to create real, lasting change. Whether it’s teaching English to Ethiopian Israelis or helping local NGO staff further a project, fellows become deeply involved in the grassroots Israel experience and in the communities they serve.
The 2018-19 Social Change Fellowship will begin on September 25th 2018.
The application deadline for the 2018-2019 Yahel Social Change Fellowship is March 20, 2018.
Inside the Program
The core of the Yahel Social Change Fellowship is volunteer work. From designing youth programs at a local school, to helping to empower Israeli-Arab women in Na’am, you will work hand-in-hand with local organizations to create real change at the local level. By responding to community needs and using the individual skillset of each fellow, we are able to create tangible, fulfilling progress that leave both the communities and our fellows better off than before.
We believe in learning by doing; in action-oriented education and relevant, profound experiences that encourage you not only to grow, but to ask questions that spark conversation. Our courses range from learning about Israeli society to skill building workshops and we strive to keep courses relevant. Throughout your time with us, weeks will be marked by seminars, meeting with local activists, peer-led learning, tours, and time for reflecting on it all.
The experience of living, volunteering, and learning in local communities will expose you to the rich diversity of Israel while you become part of the very communities you serve. Whether it’s at home in your apartment or celebrating a local holiday with a host family, you will have unlimited opportunities to learn Hebrew, experience real Israeli food and customs, and see the country through the eyes of a local. You’ll form relationships and create memories that last far longer than the fellowship itself.
