Personal Development Course


Find yourself before you find a job… The Academy of Life Training (ALT) is the ideal environment for developing life skills while growing from a great internship in Israel. With locations in Jerusalem and also in the Tel Aviv area, students work in the morning at top internships in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem and then participate in small interactive discussion groups in the afternoon, and generally have evenings free. ALT offers single-gender trips where our inspiring staff share valuable life skills culled from their observant Jewish tradition. The ALT staff show students how to analyze and develop themselves in three central areas: social life, spiritual life, and professional life. Students will see the practical benefits that Jewish Wisdom has to offer with regards to establishing a healthy outlook and life balance.
