• JInternship ALT

    The Academy of Life Training (ALT) is the ideal environment for developing life skills while growing from a great internship in Israel. With locations in Jerusalem and a small number of spots in the Tel Aviv area, students work in the morning at top internships and then participate in small interactive discussion groups in the afternoon. Evenings are generally free time. The ALT staff show students how to analyze and develop themselves while gaining critical skills in three central areas of life: social, professional, and spiritual life. Students will learn practical skills for bettering themselves and start to establish a healthy life-outlook and life balance. Find yourself… before you find a job!
