"The most important thing in life is to dare" – Shimon Peres

Israel is a nation of dreamers, go-getters, and innovators – people of vision, ambition, and innovation – people perhaps like you – at a crossroads between what's now, and what's next. On behalf of the NEXT team, we invite you to take your next step with us.

From advancing co-existence in the Galilee to launching your career in Tel Aviv, to teaching English in a local school, there are so many opportunities to do something truly enriching while getting to explore Israel as a society, not just a place to visit. And on NEXT, you'll be treated like family, because you are family. Our staff in North America and throughout Israel are here to support you all along the way.

We invite you to learn more and find your next great life adventure with us.  If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're here for you.
