‘The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive’
The Israeli Volunteering Council leads the volunteering arena in Israel. The council promotes volunteering in cooperation with government ministries, local authorities, NGO’s and the business sector in Israel and around the world. The Council’s mission is to develop data based infrastructure in order to advance volunteering in four key areas.
The Council serves thousands of volunteering managers and professionals every year, who in turn serve hundreds of thousands of individuals from all religions and sectors. The councils’ professional staff also teaches volunteer management courses for undergraduate and graduate students in several colleges and universities in Israel.
Internationally, the Council is a member of the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE), participates in international conferences, knowledge development forums and professional exchanges.
The Council’s Target Audiences are organizations that engage volunteers: government ministries, local authorities, corporations, non-profit-organizations and social entrepreneurs in Israel and abroad.
