The Volunteer at a Palestinian University in the West Bank Program offers a dynamic and engaging opportunity for individuals keen on delving into Palestinian culture, lending a hand to the local community, and broadening their perspectives. With a flexible duration ranging from 1 to 12 weeks, participants can tailor their involvement to align with their interests and objectives in the region.

Engaging in the Palestinian University volunteer program opens doors to a multifaceted cultural exploration while contributing meaningfully to the local community. This endeavor promises to enhance both personal and professional spheres, fostering enduring memories and connections that endure well beyond one’s time in the West Bank.

In this program, your main job is to assist English teachers at the university. You’ll mainly help students with their English speaking and writing skills. But you’ll also work with different university departments on various tasks and projects. This means you’ll be a valuable part of the university, not just in the classroom but also behind the scenes, helping the university run smoothly.

Besides your university work, you’ll get to plan and lead workshops for students. These workshops cover different topics like how to communicate well and how to find a job. This is a chance for you to share what you know and help students learn important life skills. It’s also an opportunity for you to learn and grow while making a lasting impact on the university community.
