Theme Based Programs

Onward Israel’s theme based programs offer unique internship opportunities to young adults aged 19-27 from around the globe. Each program places participants in cohorts with other like-minded individuals which creates a completely unique opportunity to network and engage with peers in different sectors of a career field. Work and live in Israel while exploring what makes Israel a global influence in the field of your interest.

Preference will be given to applicants who are not eligible for a community or national partner based Onward Israel program. To find the program that’s right for you, use the program finder on our homepage to determine your eligibility.

These Onward Israel programs are operated through a partnership between the Beacon and Shapira Foundations and other leading philanthropists, Masa Israel Journey, and the Jewish Agency for Israel.

Summer 2020 programs will be opening in mid-November! Click here to be notified when you can apply.
