The Yahel Social Change Program is offering a new scholarship opportunity for young adults who have youth work and/or camp experience and are currently recruiting participants for their fall 2011 cohort.
The Yahel Social Change Program is a 5-month service learning experience for young adults between the ages of 21 and 27. The program is based in the town of Gedera in Israel, and combines hands-on volunteer work with in-depth learning and immersion. Offered in collaboration with a grassroots non-profit organization working in the Ethiopian community in the fields of community empowerment and education, the program presents an opportunity to take part in meaningful and innovative social change efforts in Israel. Yahel participants live, volunteer and learn alongside young adults from the local Ethiopian-Israeli community. Substantial grants and scholarships are available through Masa Israel Journey. Yahel is now accepting applications for its fall of 2011 program. For details about the Yahel Social Change Program visit their website.
