3. Participate in a phone interview with a Tikkun Olam representative
After we have received and reviewed your written application, we will contact you to schedule a time when we can call you to conduct a phone interview. Phone interviews can be expected to last roughly one hour. During the interview, your interviewer will try to get a more personal impression of who you are, why you are interested in the program and how you would fit in to the program's goals. It is a chance for us to get to know the person behind the application, as well as to gauge your level of dedication, maturity, and how well you will be able to work in a group.
4. Internship Track Applicants
Applicants to the Internship Track must fill out an additional form (click here).  After you have completed the full application process, been accepted to the program and confirmed your participation, a member of Tikkun Olam's guidance staff will contact you to schedule an internship consultation over the phone or Skype. 
5. Stay in touch with us!
Following your interview, we will be in touch with you to let you know of our timetable for reaching a decision. In the meantime, and even after a decision is reached, we ask that you keep in touch with us. We are happy to answer any of your questions or address any concerns. In the meantime, it is extremely important that you keep us apprised of any changes in your contact information. As the start of the program approaches, we will need to send you information on preparing to come join us in Israel.
