Volunteering in Tel Aviv

On the Social Action Track you will be volunteering 20-24 hours each week at 2-5 different volunteering placements, most of which are located within walking distance from your apartments, or a short bus ride away.  Your 25 hours will be divided up between 3 week-days (exact days will be confirmed at the start of the program)
