Onward Israel was launched in 2012, through collaboration between the Jewish Agency, lead philanthropists and a wide array of partners from around the Jewish world. Onward Israel is now an independent board led organization, established as a Public Benefit Company (Hevra Leto'elet Hatzibur, or "Cheletz") in Israel..
Onward Israel's goal is to strengthen the Jewish identity and connection to Israel of the next generation of Jewish young adults throughout the world. Onward Israel provides participants with an immersive and transformative resume building experience in Israel, featuring opportunities such as internships, service learning, academic courses and fellowships.
Onward Israel facilitates mid-length Israel experiences (6-10 weeks) for students and young adults, primarily during the summer, speaking directly to the interests and concerns of the young adult population entering the labor force in a global world. Programs are structured around three key pillars: resume-building opportunities such as internships, fellowships and professional training; immersive living experiences in Israel; and educational content about modern Israel. Further, Onward Israel maximizes opportunities for cross-cultural immersion, a feature that is highly prized by employers and academic institutions. The initiative leverages investments in first-time Israel experiences by generating a solid cohort of motivated and engaged alumni, who will return home more likely to remain connected to Israel and the Jewish People and to further develop their own Jewish identity. IN 2017, some 2200 young people will take part in Onward Israel programs. Since its inception, 4500 have participated.
