Located on a forested hillside in the Galilee, Harduf is a kibbutz-based community that promotes ecological sustainability, organic agriculture, co-existence, culture, and community. In other words, it's the perfect backdrop for a volunteer experience.

VOLUNTEER POSSIBILITIES

The Project TEN center at Kibbutz Harduf opened in 2013. Volunteer projects are organized in partnership with local nonprofits and include these opportunities:

  • Teaching English in elementary schools in the neighboring Bedouin villages
  • Working at Beit Elisha – a rehabilitative community for adults with special needs
  • Working in the organic agricultural fields
  • Working with at-risk youth at the Tuvia Boarding School
  • Pursuing a theater project in English, Hebrew, and Arabic
  • Ecological planning and construction of the “Sha'ar La'Adam” forest
ACCOMMODATIONS

Volunteers live in an ecological village that features yurt-like structures with:

  • Environmentally friendly showers and toilets
  • Shared kitchen and dining space
  • Bedrooms with space for 3-4 residents (men and women have separate rooms)
  • Wi-Fi, washing machine, and dryer
  • Inspiring forest views!

The facilities have been constructed with the goal of conserving energy, materials, and water, but also provide necessities such as a refrigerator, furnishings, washing machines and wi-fi. The food supplied by the center is strictly vegetarian and locally purchased to ensure freshness. Volunteers at Harduf maintain a kosher-style vegetarian kitchen.

MITZPE RAMON

UPSTART DESERT TOWN LIVING

Mitzpe Ramon

Located at the Ramon Crater's edge – the world's largest erosion crater – Mitzpe Ramon is a thriving town in the Negev Desert. Mitzpe Ramon is located near multiple national parks and Bedouin communities, which is the focus of our volunteering.

VOLUNTEER POSSIBILITIES

The Project TEN center at Mitzpe Ramon opened in 2019. Volunteer projects are organized in partnership with local nonprofits and include these opportunities:

  • Organizing activities for disadvantaged youth from Mitzpe Ramon
  • Teaching English in nearby Bedouin communities and supporting co-existence initiatives
  • Collaborating with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority to promote desert nature conservation initiatives and ecological tourism initiatives
  • Operating community gardens for the benefit of Mitzpe Ramon's residents
ACCOMMODATIONS

Volunteers live in the town’s artists' district– with its cafes, restaurants, and small art galleries. Facilities include:

  • Living room, classroom, and courtyard
  • Fully equipped kitchen and dining space
  • Bedrooms with space for 4-6 residents (men and women have separate rooms)
  • Wi-Fi, washing machine, and dryer
  • Steps away from unspoiled desert views

Our accommodations were once a workers’ village and over the years have developed into a haven for young people, travelers, and artists. Volunteers at Mitzpe Ramon maintain a kosher-style vegetarian kitchen.
