Volunteer with Project TEN
The Jewish Agency's new Project TEN ("ten" is the Hebrew word for "give") brings together Jewish young adults from Israel and around the world to spend three months working and learning together in vulnerable communities throughout the globe. While performing meaningful service projects that promote sustainable development, the volunteers participate in a unique, immersive service-learning framework that highlights Jewish values.
Project TEN creates a triple win: For the populations in need, who benefit from volunteers, resources, and know-how; for the participants, who form a lasting bond as members of the global Jewish family and, together, explore their Jewish heritage; and for Jewish communities worldwide, each of which benefits from international relationship-building, the cross-pollination of pluralistic ideas, and the creation of Jewish and Israeli goodwill ambassadors.
