Volunteer Opportunities

There are several ways you can volunteer at Telfed:

    Telfed boasts 24 regional committees throughout the country. Join one in order to:
    • Make new Olim feel at home
    • Create a community of Southern African Olim
    • Join our social projects: Lone Soldiers, Ethiopian Community, Time Bank Project and others ...
      or simply create your own!
  • Join the Telfed Ethiopian Community Initiative (TECI)
    • Teach children English (Hadera)
    • Serve as an English and/or Life Mentor for an Ethiopian student
    • Teach adults English and/or Computer Skills
    • Take part of our TECI Committee; help influence our policies and projects.
  • ​​​Join the MAKSAM Smile
    Few Ethiopian children in Hadera have parents or grandparents able to help them with their homework. These smiling primary school children are lucky that someone just like you spends a few hours in the afternoon helping them. You too can become part of a MAKSAM smile by contributing a small amount of your time each week in the late afternoon.  
    Contact us here.
