Joining ISM

Updated January 17, 2017
After a re-evaluation phase, ISM Palestine is ready to receive and train new volunteers in Palestine after mid-February. In order to join, please follow the steps below.

If you’re interested in becoming a part of the work on the ground in Palestine – “ahlan wa sahlan” (Arabic for welcome). In order to become a part of the team, we ask you to first contact one of the support groups near you. Be aware that you’ll have to commit to at least two weeks in Palestine (after training), in order to ensure that our teams can work effectively!

Our support groups can share information, give you an idea of what the work in Palestine will include, what living with the Palestinian community there means, what to be prepared for and what to expect.

In order to get started, please contact your nearest support group:

The support groups will also advise you on further steps.

In order to connect with your support group, please use a safe e-mail address that does not include your actual name, so that everyone will stay safe.

If you’re having any issues contacting your support group, please send us an e-mail and we’ll try to connect you.

For anyone already in Palestine and interested in joining the team, please send us an e-mail.
