About the Programme
Genesis Israel Intern Summer 2018
Make Israel your home this summer in our new sizzling 7 week INTERNSHIP and STUDY programme, soaking up ISRAEL, independent living and gaining professional work experience in the homeland of the JEWISH PEOPLE.
You’re not seriously asking that are you? Israel in the summer has it all...great weather, great food, amazing people plus limitless opportunities to be inspired and connect to the Jewish People. Israel has made its success out of entrepreneurship, hard work, creativity and determination, it is a fantastic place to intern and make your summer count.
Why an Internship?
Ok, so you’re doing a three year course, your summer lasts four months and what you do with it says a lot about you. Using one summer to gain great experience and clarity on your future life choices will not only start to give you focus on which direction you want to take in the future but it also looks fantastic on your resume and might make all the difference to your future. What’s more, completing a work placement in an exciting start Up nation like Israel takes things to a whole new level!
Why with Genesis?
Cheeky! You can expect all of the things you love about Genesis from inspirational shabbatot, great speakers, a team of dedicated educators - we'll turn a summer internship into a thought provoking, character building, soul nourishing journey of a life time! Plus naturally there will be great food! All that said, this new programme will also give you your independence, time to travel and explore the country within the structure of an inspiring group programme.
How is the program structured?
We start with a 5 day orientation, followed by a 5 1/2 week internship and then things wrap up with a final few days together at the end. Shabbatot are a combination of those spent together and the freedom to do your own thing but check out the section on weekends for more details....
What about the weekends?
During the 7 weeks we will have two phenomenal group Shabbat experiences together, one in the Old City of Jerusalem, and another with host families - a third Shabbat will be optional. You will have 3 Shabbatot free to spend as you wish although we will always offer an organised alternative for those who would like hospitality, or to spend meals with our own team who will be with you throughout.
Tell me more about the Internship?
You will work for 4 days a week Sunday-Wednesday, usually 9am-4pm however this is to be worked out with your place of work. When applying to the programme you will let us know the areas you are interested in working and we will find you relevant placements. You will have an interview with our internship coordinator and be put in touch directly with your placement ahead of the trip. Early application will allow us to find you the most suitable placement. Once in Israel, you will be given a travel pass for Jerusalem and also a food voucher to cover meals. A dedicated internship coordinator is available throughout the programme and will be responsible for making sure all is well with your placement and accommodation.
When do we learn?
Thursday will be a Genesis Day with inspiring classes in the morning and a fun activity/tour in the afternoon evening. There will also be a dynamic learning programme one evening and sometimes two evenings a week.
How do we connect with the Genesis Israel Volunteer group?
We will all begin together for the first week, after which the volunteers will relocate to Netanya. You will spend the Genesis day together most Thursdays and also spend our organised Shabbatot together. You also have a fair amount of free time to visit each other.
Where will we live?
You will live independently in apartments in Jerusalem in the area close to the Mahane Yehuda Market which is one of the most desirable places to live in the city. Close to the light rail, buses and the main central bus station this area is also home to ‘the shuk’ - the amazing bustling Jerusalem Open Air Market which comes to life at night with an incredible array of bars and restaurants.
How much does it cost?
For an incredible 7 weeks in Israel, you will pay only £899 and £799 if you apply before 31st December. These prices take into consideration having earned a full £200 Genesis Scholarship through our weekly campus programme.
