College Junior/Senior trips

***New for Summer 2015!***

Special Northern Exposure dates have been added just for Juniors and Seniors in College (ages 19-21). The regular Northern Exposure is for ages 21-30, but our 3 Northern Exposure College programs this summer will now enable those aged 19-21 to experience Livnot.

The Northern Exposure College program will be run separately from the normal Northern Exposure, which is still for ages 21-30.

More Details

Be part of rewarding and challenging work to help the next generation in developing Israel.  Every Livnot volunteer project is driven by the community, so you know you’ll be doing the work that really matters to locals and their families. We’ve arranged all of the logistics, so you can spend your time immersed in a new culture and experiencing growth and reflection.

Each program creates a community of young Jewish adults who volunteer, learn, trek, ask questions, engage local residents and experience Israel differently. The sense of community created by the Livnot program carries over to all the activities in which participants engage while learning about Israel, Israelis the Jewish World, and their personal connection to each of these aspects. The program is geared for young Jewish adults, ages 21-30 with minimal Jewish background.
