Joining ISM

If you’re interested in learning more about becoming a part of the work on the ground in Palestine – “ahlan wa sahlan” (Arabic for welcome).

To keep you safe, please contact us using an email address that does not include your legal name. We can be reached at ismtraining@riseup.net.

We will connect you to a support group to brief you and provide online training that is required before you travel to Palestine. Training is currently only offered online.

Two weeks is the minimum time commitment; longer is much better to ensure consistency, relationship-building, and skills honed and passed on to new volunteers.

We suggest a minimum of a three-week stay to better integrate into the work, help with relationship-building, and ensure consistency across our volunteer group, although two weeks is acceptable if necessary.
