Volunteer Opportunities in Tzfat

Make a difference volunteering in Israel!

From Ascent’s historic building in the Old City of Tzfat, in the northern part of Israel, you can see stunning views of the Galilee and breathe the fresh crisp air of the mountains. Ascent offers comfortable hostel accommodations, a volunteer program and serves as a meeting place and launching pad for personal spiritual exploration for travelers and students from around the world. Volunteers opportunities are available daily and on a long term basis.
