Shahak Program - Community Social Services
Shahak is a program for immigrant students in which they can receive a financial stipend in exchange for volunteer work in the social service organization of their choosing. The financial aid is granted for the second or third year of study depending on eligibility.
In addition to granting them the financial aid, the program facilitates the students exposure to demographic sectors to which they would not usually have access and helps them gain professional experience with different streams of Israeli society.
