Volunteering in ALUT's Residential Homes for adults
Each year ALUT's Residential Homes for adults welcomes 150 volunteers from 24 countries around the word.
ALUT volunteers come within the framework of the Unit for Volunteer Services in the Ministry of Welfare.
After a period of three months, the Unit for Volunteer Services and ALUT will take care of the renewal of the volunteer's visa, which will be changed from B/2 (Tourist) to B/4 (volunteer) status.
For this matter the Ministries of Welfare and Interior in Israel established that the volunteers should present:
- Doctor declaration
- Police declaration- for not having any sex felonies translated to ENGLISH, signed by apostil.
- Medical Insurance
ALUT provides the volunteers with adequate sleeping quarters; transportation; pocket money; volunteer insurance in accordance with the laws of the National Insurance Institute; Hebrew language studies.
Volunteers work 5 days a week, 35-40 hours per week.
Volunteers are obligated to volunteer for a minimum 3 months.
