Placement Process

A successful volunteer experience comes from diligent preparation of both the volunteer and the Israeli partner organization.

Start by visiting our website and completing our inquiry form which triggers Skilled Volunteers for Israel to schedule an interview.



Once cleared through our comprehensive screening process, our Israel-based Volunteer Coordinators match each volunteers’ skills, interests, geographical preference and time frame for volunteering with a needed position or project within an Israeli non-profit organization or educational institution.  The coordinators also provide on-site support to volunteers during the volunteer placement.

A Process to Create a Meaningful Experience

We work together with the volunteer and host organization to carefully set expectations and responsibilities for your volunteer placement.

Skilled Volunteers for Israel leaves no stone unturned in their efforts to fit the right volunteer to the right placement….they were always there with support, advice, and encouragement, before, during and after the volunteer experience. To anyone who wants to spend time in Israel and do some meaningful, useful volunteering, I cannot recommend Skilled Volunteers for Israel highly enough.” Ruth Wicks, 2012 Volunteer


“All of the children and the staff have given me such a warm welcome and I have never felt like a stranger in their midst. I can sincerely say that I have felt part of the volunteer team throughout the short time I have been here. I am very grateful to all of its members and am keenly aware that in other volunteer situations it can often take a much longer time to feel at home.”
