Semester 2 - Internship
January - May (apx. 12 weeks)
Think of what you always wanted to do or learn, and do it! We offer various options in Israel: Take advantage of the vital start-up nation and find an internship incorporating technology or business, basic military training, agriculture, culinary and more.
This part is mainly about independency, as we encourage the participants to manage their lives and make healthy choices almost entirely on their own. Our acquaintanceship with each participant allows us to guide and structure each internship according to your needs and levels of support. It is also about finding a purpose and following through on your decisions, making the most out of this experience. We support the participants throughout this time, both locally and remotely.
Combined with our group gatherings and activities, as you learn to know them during our first semester, this is a great opportunity to continue your personal growth and development, having our support on the one hand, and experiencing independency on the other.
Bellow, you may find some of the options available. Furthermore, if your dream is not listed here, let us know. We will work hard to make it happen.

First aid course and practice
Over the past few decades the field of Emergency Medicine has been quickly emerging and developing. Spreading across countries just as soon as it began to take form, first among professionals and then, as it solidified, amongst the general population.
This development came from the clear understanding that an exhaustive and full medical training is not necessary to acquire the skills needed to save lives. Rather, a certain basic training is sufficient to provide the tools for critical first aid even for those who do not work in the medical field on a daily basis.

You can challenge yourself and do the trail from the north to the south or choose parts of it.
