MITF-Israel Outdoor NEXT Cities:
Known as the capital of the Negev Desert, Be’er Sheva is one of Israel’s fastest growing cities in Israel. Home to Ben Gurion University, Be’er Sheva has a large student population and a vibrant culture for young adults. As a result, the area around the university has a college town feel, filled with entertaining nightlife.
Be’er Sheva also has a large immigrant population and many Bedouin communities in the nearby areas. Fellows are also encouraged to volunteer with these communities based on their own background and interests, and consequently, be an even greater asset and better understand local issues of coexistence.
Located only 30 minutes north of Tel Aviv, Netanya serves as a vital social and economic link between the northern and southern parts of Israel. Netanya is home to many start-ups and hi-tech companies. Immigrants make up 35% of the population, mostly coming from France and Ethiopia.
With its seemingly never-ending promenades, Netanya’s nine miles of white sand beaches, wild cliffs, and green parks rank among the most beautiful in the world. In addition to teaching English, you will work on secondary community volunteer projects for approximately three hours each week.
