Start up your future

UJIA Onward Israel is a two-month internship and leadership programme based in Tel Aviv, the vibrant cultural heart of Israel for young adults aged 19 – 27. Participants will experience valuable and meaningful internships and training seminars that will set them up for successful careers in the working world, on campus, or in Youth Movements.

UJIA Onward Israel will help you build your CV through personalised, high-level internships in the field of your choice. Join other students and young adults from the UK during an 8-week experiential living, learning, leadership and career-building programme in Tel Aviv, Israel.

You will intern for 4 or 5 days a week and enjoy touring days and activities together as a group throughout the summer. During the programme, you will get to experience a weekend Shabbaton in the Galil, and will see first-hand the vulnerable communities on the periphery of Israeli society that UJIA is helping to transform.

You will also be given the option to take part in leadership training seminars run by some of the best leaders Israel has to offer.

During the programme, one of the things that past participants have enjoyed the most is meeting and building relationships with like-minded people from around the world, whilst also exploring Tel Aviv’s exciting nightlife, food, culture and great people.

Interning through UJIA Onward Israel will give you the leadership skills and relevant work experience to gain an advantage in the UK’s saturated and competitive job market.
