Social Commitment is at the heart of the Academic
College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo (MTA) academic offering. In accord with our commitment to Experiential Learning and Applied Research, the MTA offers students an opportunity to participate in a wide range of social projects and programs to effect positive change, and improve the lives of individuals, families and underserved communities throughout Israel.
With a focus on social issues such as educational attainment gaps and youth addictions, Individual Projects offer targeted solutions for a wide range of community-based programs, from preventive health and therapeutic aid, to academic enrichment.
Most projects align with Service-learning Courses found within each of the MTA’s five schools, and provide direct services that utilize student knowledge, experience and skill sets.
Longterm Programs integrate several MTA intervention programs to offer underserved communities with comprehensive solutions to complex social challenges. Our flagship program, ’Adopt a School’, works with the administration, staff, parents and students of a Jaffa-based high school to improve academic success rates and facilitate easier transitions to college.
Student Volunteer Programs
The MTA’s Center for Academia-Community Relations facilitates a host of Student Volunteer Programs with non-profit-organizations and community centers based in Jaffa and South Tel Aviv.
