Volunteer Service in Israel

Your Volunteer Service With ALEH Israel – A Year With The Best Teachers In The World.


Are you between 18 and 26 years old and have you just finished your high school diploma or your university degree? Do you want to find new orientation and are you looking for a suitable challenge? Then find out more about an International Youth Volunteer Service (IJFD) with ALEH Israel (only for volunteers from Germany).


Supported by the German Federal Ministry for Family, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, the March of Life e.V. has been offering young adults the opportunity of a six-month stay in Israel with ALEH since 2015. ALEH is Israel’s biggest network of living quarters for children with severe physical and mental disabilities. More than a hundred employees in four institutions in Israel care for about 700 people with disabilities. Their motto is “a strong society must be measured by its conduct with its weakest members”.

Older than 26 years? The ALEH network is grateful for any help! Talk to us.

Participant in the volunteer programme

“Everybody here has become like a big family to me: The inhabitants, the employees and the other volunteers. Every day it is great fun to help the inhabitants of ALEH in their every day and to accompany them. They showed me that the most important thing is not to communicate through the same language but that hearts meet.”

Are you interested in a stay with ALEH?

The requirements are:

  • Completion of the obligatory school term
  • Mandatory participation of preparational and post-processing seminars
  • Proficient knowledge of English

Your IJFD with ALEH Israel is government-funded (only for volunteers from Germany).

Therefore, you will receive the following benefits:

  • Board and lodging                              
  • Health, accident and liability insurance for abroad
  • Seminar expenses
  • A small allowance
  • Continued payment of child benefit
  • Accreditation of the service as occupational orientation
  • Issuing of a certificate
  • Pedagogic mentoring during the entirety of the service
  • Assistance with the application of the visa

What does the March of Life stand for?

For more than ten years the March of Life has stood for the remembrance of the Holocaust, reconciliation between affected persons and perpetrators and for making a statement against anti-Semitism and Israel hatred. With your volunteer service for the weakest of the Israeli society you, also, can make a clear statement.
