Join other students and young adults from the UK for an eight-week experiential living, learning, leadership and career-building programme. You will intern for four or five days a week while enjoying touring and exploration days and activities with your group throughout the summer.

    During our programme, you will have an amazing opportunity to experience a weekend Shabbaton in the Galil, UJIA’s partnership region where you will experience communities on the periphery of Israeli society. You will also be given the chance to take part in Onward Israel’s renowned leadership training seminars, taught by some of the best leaders Israel has to offer.

    One of the aspects of the programme that past participants have enjoyed the most is the opportunity to meet and build relationships with like-minded people from around the world, while also exploring Tel Aviv’s exciting nightlife, food, culture and people. Interning at top Israeli companies through UJIA Onward Israel will give you the leadership skills and relevant experience to gain a great and crucial advantage in the job market. Above all else, you will have the most memorable summer!
