Social projects throughout Israel

Tozeret Ha’aretz is a nationwide network numbering 900 students who work every day to change the discourse and the reality in Israel, and to advance the cities in which they are active. Additionally, the program has expanded its community with graduates, young activists, and young families, who have chosen to stay in the cities after completing the two-year student program. The number of graduates across Israel currently stands at 860. 

Our vision is to promote social justice and social equality in Israel’s most underdeveloped and challenging areas. We believe that the younger generation holds the key to social change, and therefore embarked on the enterprise of creating young mission-driven communities in these places. Our community members volunteer, and by doing so influence the lives of children, adolescents, senior citizens, and thousands of residents in Jewish and Arab societies alike.


The significant and evident impact made by Tozeret Ha’aretz couldn’t have been accomplished without our partners, both governmental, philanthropic and business oriented. If you share our vision of a strong civic society, join us in changing the future of Israel. Become a partner and help us grow and evolve to fulfill our vision of social change.
