To even further enhance our students experiences here in Israel, we have built into the Chai Israel schedule time for add-on extra-curricular oppurtunities. These options will give students a chance to make their year in Israel even more productive by choosing to enrole in courses that will enable them to study and possibly even earn certification in an area of interest that will give them a jumpstart into their future career. Some of the add-on opportunities are more travel oriented or simply experiential and can be selected based on our students unique interests.


Some of our projects are long term but in general, we dedicate at least one afternoon a week to a worthy cause.

The dates and times for add-ons vary depending on the nature of the course. Some are a few hours every week throughout the year and others are confined to only one or two weeks during the semester.

Here are a few add-on options available for Chai Israel students for 2011-2012. Please be aware that these add-on options are not mandatory. Some may involve additional costs beyond the regular tuition fee and are often paid directly to the course administrator or the company that is organizing the program. Chai Israel will assist in making the neccasary arrangements with the student and the organization . Additional application and registration forms and fees may apply. Applications for add-ons are available only after registration to Chai Israel is complete and all forms and tuition payments have been submitted.
