This wonderful program makes a true difference to the lives of others, providing development and improvement programs to communities living with violence and occupation, offering children, youth, and adult’s safe spaces to learn, thrive and grow. 

Volunteer projects are mainly held within one of the several prominent refugee camps in the region, but part of the work may also be undertaken in surrounding villages or other parts of the city. The occupation has negatively impacted the lives of many Palestinian's, with children suffering some of the worst effects. So many of the children have lost feelings of hope, happiness and peace, and miss out on a childhood that so many of us take for granted. Volunteers are desperately needed to bring joy, happiness, and life changing skills to the people and children living within these refugee camps.

Goals of this Project:

  • Support the Palestinian people who have suffered from the occupation
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Palestine’s most impoverished people
  • Create a sense of hope and belonging for marginalized young people
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for people living in marginalized communities of Palestine. While this project is best suited to those pursuing a career in the fields of anthropology, social work, social entrepreneurship and/or economics, volunteers who simply wish to be involved in a more ‘varied’ project are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist and individual projects can often be tailored to suit the particular skills and interests or each participant. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:

Emergency contact
Police check
