The goal of the Service Year Program (formerly Shin-shinim) is to place high school graduates from Israel in Jewish communities abroad for a one-year program of volunteer activity (Shnat Sheirut).

The goal of the Service Year Program is to place high school graduates from Israel in Jewish communities abroad for a year to volunteer (Shnat-Sheirut) prior to enrolling for their military service in order to encourage interaction among young Jews through dialogue.
 
While abroad, they live with host families from the community. Service Year Shlichim (at least two per community) volunteer in local Jewish day schools and supplementary schools, community centers, old age homes, nursery schools, and more. They are involved in informal educational activities — in local day schools, synagogues, and Jewish camps — that are primarily related to the Jewish festivals, Hebrew instruction, and conveying a sophisticated, personal, and relevant Israel.
