BE THE CHANGE!

Join our team of volunteers making an impact on Israeli society through projects that may include informal education, organic agriculture, special needs outreach, environmental protection, and sustainable tourism. Volunteers are also empowered to pursue a project of their own design that most inspires them!

More than a volunteer program, Project TEN Israel also contributes to the vitally important cause of co-existence and cultural understanding with nearby Arab, Bedouin, and Jewish communities in the region.

When not volunteering, the program includes various travel experiences and activities designed to expand your understanding of Israel. You'll also benefit from being part of a cohort of volunteers who come from Israel and around the world.

Project TEN is an initiative of the Jewish Agency that hosts service-learning experiences in Israel and developing regions around the world, using an integrated curriculum that focuses on Jewish values, community, and action.

Masa Israel Project Ten

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