Been dreaming of visiting the Holy Land? Sign up for World Explorers in Israel to get the experience of a lifetime. CHI offers unique volunteer opportunities in Israel that are arranged through our trusted partner agency. These opportunities include:
You will receive local in-country support during your program to guarantee your safety. An orientation in Jerusalem is included before your start date. Please contact us to find out more about our unique volunteer opportunities in Israel.
We understand that keeping the World Explorers cost down is as important as the life-changing experience you will enjoy. Hence, we prepared a cost calculator which shows the cost of the program (excluding airfare) compared to the cost of a standard vacation. The prices are calculated according to the destination chosen, the arrival and departure dates, and the length of your stay. The length of your stay is an especially important factor: the longer you stay abroad, the cheaper the cost per day becomes.
CHI is a non-profit organization, but we still have fixed costs that are necessary for running the program. Our overseas partners are actually for-profit, and we must take that into consideration as well. Our partners do the work to find and screen excellent host families that match your interests and needs!
Staying in Peqi’in with a local Druze family was one of the best things I had ever done in the 20 years of my life simply because it was an opportunity that few people ever got – to live in a world so isolated and so vastly different to the world I knew back in Australia. It was quiet and peaceful, unlike the chaotic streets of Tel Aviv and the underlying tension one feels within the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. I felt like I was in a totally new dimension of time – life went at a different pace. And it felt amazing.
