Representatives from leading American service organizations, including Teach for America, US Peace Corps, City Year, and other organizations traveled to Israel last week to explore volunteering opportunities offered through Masa Israel Journey. With young adults’ growing interest in international volunteer opportunities, Masa Israel, a joint project of the Government of Israel and the Jewish Agency for Israel, is making Israel a global hub for service programs.

At the conclusion of the program the participants met with Alan Hoffmann, Director General of the Jewish Agency and summed up their visit.
