Israel Teaching Fellows aims to close the achievement gap in Israel’s education system by placing English-speaking college graduates as English teacher’s aides in schools throughout Israel. The program begins with a month of training including Hebrew ulpan and pedagogical training. Following training, participants will live in small groups throughout Israel and will be placed in schools as English teacher’s aides.
Participants will teach for 20 hours per week in their school and will also choose or design a secondary volunteering project in the community in which they live. Successful applicants must have a college degree, have experience in formal or informal education, have previously demonstrated the ability to excel in a cross-cultural environment and a be willing to be immerse themselves in Israeli culture.
Israel Experience is fortunate to have a partnership with the community of Rishon Le’zion (“The First to Zion”), a vibrant city that was the home to the first major aliyah (immigration) in 1882. Much has changed since then now that it is the fourth largest city in Israel with a thriving metropolitan center filled with parks, cultural centers and commercial areas. The city borders some of the most beautiful Israeli beaches, is centrally located and is just a quick ride from Tel Aviv (12 miles). The city has been putting a large push to making vast improvements in the educational system and your support is needed to help students achieve their potential.
Israel Teaching Fellows is highly subsidized by Masa Israel Journey and the Israeli Ministry of Education, reducing the program fee to $1000, which includes your round-trip flight, health insurance, and a monthly stipend.
