PRAS is a unique programme whose principal purpose is to assist olim and improve their integration and quality of life in Israel. The concept is simple: students from all around the country volunteer to help new olim, and receive a scholarship from Telfed in appreciation of their contribution to the olim community.
Applications to be assisted by a PRAS student in the 2016/17 academic year are now closed. If you feel that you need the assistance that the PRAS programme can provide, please contact Merav at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our students volunteer in a variety of categories:
Mentoring and assisting new Olim, encouraging them to refine and enhance their Hebrew language skills and making their Klita process smoother.
Providing children with a “big brother/sister” in order to help them adjust to life in Israel. Along with social activities and being a caring source of support, students can help children with homework when necessary.
Assisting people with special needs.
Accompanying and assisting the elderly.
