Volunteer Opportunities in Israel

Perhaps no other country in the world sparks intense debates as frequently as Israel does. People often mislabel this beautiful Middle Eastern country as a war-torn nation. However, the truth is life in general in Israel is peaceful and relaxed. The country offers a  long list of volunteer programs that help travellers meet the locals and taste delicious Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. Local nonprofits partner up with foreign volunteers to support several causes such as providing humanitarian aid, promoting education, and empowering underprivileged citizens.

How to Volunteer in Israel

How to find volunteer opportunities in Israel

Israel is a highly developed urbanized nation that has plenty to offer to anyone who wishes to travel its depths. Located on the beautiful Mediterranean coastline, the city of Tel Aviv is the country’s cultural and business epicenter. Drenched in rich history and architecture, the capital city of Jerusalem houses ancient religious buildings that are considered sacred by Christians, Muslims, and Jews alike. Volunteer jobs in Israel take participants to both urban as well as rural areas. Volunteers get the opportunity to interact with the locals and get exposed to their view of life and culture. Most educational programs in Israel are available in Tel Aviv and surrounding areas. Volunteers can also provide child care and help physically disabled individuals by joining Jerusalem-based programs.

Best time to volunteer in Israel

The best time to visit Israel is during the spring time between the months of April and May. Autumn, between September and October, is also another great season to visit this great nation as temperatures remain mild. The weather in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem remains pleasant all year round. However, both the cities experience some rainfall from November to March.

Essential information about Israel

To be able to do volunteer work in Israel travellers need to obtain a special B/4 volunteering visa. To start the process, applicants need to first contact the Israeli volunteer organisations and obtain invitation letters. The letter along with a valid passport, visa application form, a passport sized photograph, proof of return flight booking, and bank statement need to be submitted in order to obtain a volunteering visa. This visa stays valid for 3 months, which can be extended by submitting a form at the Ministry of the Interior.

Hebrew and Arabic are the two official languages of Israel. However, most citizens in urban areas and even some rural areas can understand and communicate in English.

Being a developed nation, Israel is moderately expensive. A basic lunchtime meal at a moderately-priced restaurant in the city costs around $17.
