In celebration of UJA’s 54th annual Walk with Israel, UJA Genesis and Israel Engagement present Israel in Focus: High School Community Program. This program will take place mostly online and will also include one in-person opportunity for hands-on volunteering at the Walk with Israel.
Participants in the program can obtain 18 community service hours through hands-on volunteer opportunities at the Walk with Israel, as well as fundraising for programs that support initiatives in our partner communities in Israel.
Program participants must currently be in high school, be available to commit to the program, have an interest in exploring Israel’s contemporary landscape, and have a willingness to volunteer for the community. Additional program highlights include engaging with UJA’s ShinShinim (Israeli teenagers) and Diller Teen Fellows alumni, hearing from guest speakers, taking part in community-wide events, and, most importantly, contributing to the community in a meaningful way.
