Volunteering at IGY 23+

Join IGY's community of facilitators. IGY facilitators can take on a wide range of roles, from facilitating groups of LGBTQ+ teenagers or young people throughout the country, to facilitating in various youth clubs, correspondence with youth from all across the country through our digital platforms, or facilitating groups specifically for LGBTQ+ Arab youth, religious and ultra-Orthodox youth, trans youth and more.

What do you need to know before?

    • Volunteering at IGY requires a great deal of time and emotional availability. Working with youth is consuming and this means facilitators are required to come with quite a bit of free time.
    • Facilitators should be over the age of 23.
    • Each volunteering opportunity requires at least one activity per week (between 4-5 hours per week), and availability for team-building days and training on weekends once a month.
    • Want to take part in some other way? You can send an email to [email protected] and we will try to brainstorm together how.

*Important to know! Volunteering at IGY is a weekly commitment throughout the year and part of the .volunteering is attending training seminars and regional/group days throughout the year
*!Groups operate all over the country, because we are here and everywhere

So what can you do in the organization?
