University Student Volunteers
In cooperation with all of the institutes of higher education in the Negev, Arab Bedouin university students are eligible for scholarships in exchange for community volunteering. They volunteer through a diversity of programs, including academic tutoring, youth empowerment for girls and boys, sports activities, non-violence training, and more.
A special collaboration with Perach (a nation-wide tutoring program) has developed. University students who are studying science and math are paired with high school students who need assistance to prepare for their matriculation exams.
Within AJEEC-NISPED’s University Student Volunteering program, 280 volunteers reach 1,600 beneficiaries in 31 schools and community centers around the Negev region.
