After college, your future may seem set – graduation, job, etc. But what if you could veer from that path, even for just a short while, to do something completely unexpected?

Israel Outdoors NEXT provides opportunities for young Jewish adults of all backgrounds to do extraordinary things. This is your chance to reflect on who you are and what you want to become, to live outside of your comfort zone, and to learn and grow as a person in a new culture. And if you need extra encouragement, all of these opportunities are generously subsidized by Masa Israel and other partners.
