the years, the Volunteers Department has gone through some evolutional stages.
Today, the Kibbutz Program Center of the United Kibbutz Movement and the
Kibbutz Haartzi is the office officially representing all the about 250
kibbutzes spread throughout the country of Israel. The Kibbutz Program Center
is responsible for their volunteers, and provides them with any help they might
need from the moment they arrive until they leave the kibbutz.
Since 1967 more than one hundred thousand kibbutz volunteers have arrived in
Israel. Moreover, the number is still growing. As the volunteers contribute to
the needs of the kibbutz, the kibbutz offers in return an exciting and unique
working holiday experience. A holiday with the possibility to meet, live and
work with both Israeli youngsters as well as with other kibbutz volunteers from
countries and cultures from far and near
