The Israel Service Corps offers three main programs for volunteers: The Community Involvement Program, Short Term Volunteering, and Hi-Tech Internships
Community Involvement Program
The Community Involvement Program offers you an incredible opportunity to spend 5 meaningful months in Israel's society as a functioning member of the community .You will be exposed to life in Israel by living among its citizens and working together strengthening your ties with the country and its people; You are not a tourist, you're family!
In the 1880's Zionist pioneers from throughout the world worked to create a new Jewish state in our ancient homeland - the Land of Israel. Moved by the tenacity and sacrifice of those pioneers, the Israel Service Corps provides today's young Jewish adults, aged 18-30, with a similar opportunity to meet the pressing needs facing Israeli societies and inspire through action.
Based in the peripheral communities of Israel, ISC participants will create their own meaningful volunteer opportunities or choose from existing opportunities, enjoy excursions throughout the country, acquire and use Hebrew, live among Israelis and make lifelong friendships.

Short Term Volunteering
The mission of Israel Service Corps is to become a centre for short and long-term volunteering in Israel. Anyone with the desire to contribute their time to the people of Israel is welcomed to participate. ISC: Short-Term Volunteering works with local leaders in each community to identify the most pressing needs. Volunteers will be able to choose from a variety of volunteer opportunities according to their skills, background, and interests with our partnered organizations who emphasize the importance of education.
Each volunteer will have full control of where they decide to be situated, as well as the duration of their stay in Israel. ISC will act as a liaison between the volunteers and organizations. If anyone requires guidance booking hotels, flights, and/or trips around Israel, the ISC team will offer volunteers assistance.
ISC: Short-Term Volunteering is ideal for individuals who would like to experience Israel from a different perspective. To be placed in organizations throughout Israel who would benefit from having a helping hand. If you or someone you know is planning a trip to Israel and would be interested in spending a portion of their time volunteering, please complete the online application form.
