We feel a strong connection with our communities, both Toronto and New York, and strive to provide each student with the opportunity to work with us in giving back to those in need. Instituto de Estudios Hebraicos will organize volunteer opportunities to places such as clinics, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and orphanages for anyone who wants to help. We are especially dedicated to one New York, Dominican Republic and Toronto-Canada orphanage and interested students and staff go to cook, clean, help with homework, and most importantly, interact with the children.
For those wanting maximum time to volunteer in Canada we suggest our Private Hebrew and English Immersion classes for 3 hours each day leaving more time free for coordinated volunteer work. Use our rate request form for more information about a personalized program.
For students enrolling in one of our peer Hebrew and English Courses you may volunteer on the weekends and/or up to several afternoons a week. For those enrolled in Hebrew classes for less than 4 weeks a fee of $50usd may be required in advance to make volunteer arrangements. Please ask about options available without this additional fee.
