Kibbutz Programme

Friends of Israel & KPC a partnership of 15 years.
The Kibbutz Program Center

After the Six-Day War in 1967, a wave of volunteers from all over the world began arriving in Israel. Their intentions were to show their goodwill towards the State of Israel and the Israeli People, by becoming kibbutz volunteers.

The notion of a kibbutz community carrying out the true principles of a socialistic society, having all work, property and profit equally shared by its members, intrigued the volunteers. The will to become part of this

unique community grew stronger among the foreigners. Within short time, thousands of volunteers were arriving annually in Israel for the purpose of becoming kibbutz volunteers. Thus, the need for a department that could center all the organizational work surrounding the kibbutz volunteers was created.

Throughout 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.

At The Kibbutz Program Center at 6 Frishman St., phone: 972-3-524-6154/6, the staff is always available and willing to answer any questions and/or request that the volunteers might have. Their primary target is to create the perfect match between volunteers and kibbutzes thereby creating a situation where both benefit from each other.


Friends Of Israel Is The Sole Representative Of Kibbutz Program Centre  In India & Has Till Now Sent 900 Volunteers Since 1998.
