I SPEAK ISRAEL!
BE INSPIRED – SPEAK ISRAEL
I Speak Israel – Israel advocacy, public speaking, and peer leadership for a new generation of inspired Jewish teens.
I Speak Israel, a subsidized 4 week joint project between two leading educational organizations, The David Project and Young Judaea, is the first-ever Israel Advocacy summer program offered to high school students. Participants on ISI have a genuine passion for Israel and the Jewish people, and want to take their Israel advocacy, public speaking, and leadership skills to the next level.
YJ’s top tour guides and The David Project’s top advocates will boost the knowledge and sharpen the skills of ISI’s participants, so they leave Israel with a true love for the Jewish state and a sense of collective responsibility for the future of the Jewish people. Additionally, participants will feel viscerally what Israel is really about, not only by touring, hiking, swimming, etc, but also by getting to know Israel’s remarkable innovations: those that make Israel a modern-day miracle which truly makes the world a better place. In the process, they will meet inspiring people and make friends who share their love and passion for Israel. Anyone can speak for Israel; those on I Speak Israel will learn to do it well.
