CAARI Serves Israel’s Community
“As you might already know, part of the CAARI program incorporates some Community Service, or volunteer work, during the four weeks in which the group stays here in Tel Aviv. Some people choose to work in an elementary school, tutoring children in Grades 4-6 in improving their English language skills. Another option is working at Ichilov Hospital’s rehab department, serving breakfast to patients or doing similar tasks.
A few years ago another volunteer opportunity opened up at the Tel Aviv Botanic Garden, and this has been my choice since then. The Garden itself, across the road from Tel Aviv University, focuses on research and education. As volunteers, we help weed the garden and collect seeds in the Seeds Room.
This year our volunteer coordinator is Iyar, a young man doing his National Service at the Garden.”
CAARI also volunteers in the JNF forests – see Blog on Forest Work!
