The Israeli Volunteer Association (IVA) is responsible for the educational support in Israel. There will be seminars and workshop days which are conducted by a professional team of the IVA for all volunteers of the international program. No extra payments are required.
There will be a seminar that takes place immediately after your arrival in Israel and it is designed to prepare you for your service and life in Israel. It takes place in the centre of Israel. During the seminar you will meet other volunteers, get lectures about volunteering in Israel, and learn about Israel's social system. Additionally you will learn interesting facts about the Israeli state and its society, and you will learn how to solve conflicts at the placement site. Apart from that there will be excursions during the year aswell.
The workshop days serve to reflect on your voluntary service and deal with different topics and issues of Israeli society. You can choose from four different workshops throughout the year. They take place all over Israel.
The Closing Seminar takes place in the northern part of Israel and is meant to conclude the volunteer year.
