Ma’ase Olam is building a movement of leaders committed to working together to ensure that students on the margins of Israeli society get a quality education. We recruit a diverse group of passionate leaders who can meet the challenges that come with working as an English teacher in Rehovot, a thriving city just outside of Tel Aviv. Our Israel Teaching Fellows collaborate with a group of Israeli peers, who will work as your co-teachers and partners for your 10-month stay in Rehovot.
The program is operated by the Ma’ase organization, which specializes in volunteer and leadership programs for more than 700 young people all over Israel, in order to create a movement for social change. For almost a decade, Ma’ase has been running successful volunteer programs and is the recipient of several national awards in the field, including the Speaker of the Knesset Quality of Life Award for its work promoting tolerance and narrowing social gaps in Israeli society, and the Sderot Conference Award for Social Responsibility.
With Ma’ase Olam, in addition to teaching, you will take part in professional training, leadership development, and social justice sessions to learn about social issues in Israel and develop the knowledge and skills to become an effective agent for change. Topics include: democracy in Israel, minorities in Israeli society, and the meaning of a Jewish State.
