Masa Israel Teaching Fellows is a ten month fellowship for college graduates who want to make a difference. On this program you will have the opportunity to teach English from the perspective of a native English speaker to Israelis from a variety of communities that fall into the socio-economic periphery of Israel. These communities include Secular Jews, Religious Jews, Arab-Israeli Muslims, Arab-Israeli Christians and Israeli Bedouins.
As a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow (MITF) you will contribute to the future success of Israeli children in the socio-economic periphery. Teaching native English makes a real difference in these communities where the simple ability to speak English opens the doors to a whole new world of job opportunities and paths to success. Join us to gain career skills you can’t find anywhere else while making a positive impact and immersing yourself in Israeli society!
BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change runs the MITF Tel Aviv + program. I know what you are asking yourself right now, you’re asking, “Who is BINA? What does ‘Tel Aviv+’ mean? How is it different from other providers?” Let me answer those questions for you below…
MITF Tel Aviv+ is the only MITF track where you get to live and teach in Tel Aviv – Israel’s most exciting city and cultural hub!
This 10-month long experience includes five months in Tel Aviv and another five months in one of Israel’s peripheral cities, including Beit Shean, Nazareth, Kiryat Gat and Rahat. By participating in this dual-city track, you’ll have the opportunity to experience unique and different Israeli lifestyles while working to shrink the growing educational gap in Israel.
BINA’s MITF Tel Aviv+ track is a fully immersive program with just enough outside of the classroom programming to keep you interested and energetic while ensuring that you still have ample free time to explore on your own. You can learn more about what we have to offer you and all the ways you can take advantage of your time in Israel while reading more “About the Program”!
MITF Tel Aviv+ is operated by BINA: The Jewish Movement for Social Change, in partnership with Masa Israel Journey and the Israel Ministry of Education.
BINA is an Israeli organization with over 20 years of experience running high-quality service-learning programs, as well as diverse educational and community-organizing projects.
