What is Project TEN
Project TEN of the Jewish Agency has a network of volunteering centers around the world hosting active Jewish 18-28 years old who are interested in being the change they wish to see in the world. Project TEN has volunteer centers in Uganda, Ghana, South Africa, Ethiopia, Mexico, Cambodia and Israel. Project TEN participants live focusing on tikkun olam.
We bring together young Jewish adults from all over the world, in a program that combines ethical sustainable volunteer work with local communities & service-learning in the fields of international development, culture, identity, & Jewish activism.
Our center in Israel is located in the beautiful forest of Kibbutz Harduf in the Galilee and is part of the Masa Israel Journey programs. Our volunteers are from around the world, together with a core of "Shinshinim" Israeli participants before their army service, volunteer, travel & study for 5, 7 or 10 months in the middle of nature. Having Israeli Shinshinim on the program is a unique opportunity for Masa participants to live with Israelis their age, work with them shoulder to shoulder & get to know Israel through their eyes as well.

"Living on a kibbutz was very good, it felt special, peaceful & communal. I enjoyed the work in Beit Elisha, a special needs centers for adults and the school in particular. I learnt how to communicate beyond language barriers and support people better. I believe this experience has giving me more trust in my own capability in a
work environment." - Julia 19, Germany
"I wanted to connect more with my Jewish identity. I LOVED living in a desert, I liked how different it wasfrom my environment in Florida. Mitzpe is very interesting and diverse. I love the hippie vibes here. I enjoyed gardening the most and there is lots of things I will take back from my experience!" - Katherine 27, Florida
"The program was a good fit for me; I had a much needed break from school and manyenjoyable volunteering experiences. The free weekend in Eilat was awesome I camped on the beach in Eilat and visited the underwater observatory there. The educational curriculum was very informative. I improved my Hebrew and Arabic. The Jewish classes were thought-provoking!" - Yehuda, 18, Ohio
