Ariel’s Student Village volunteers give back to the community by becoming involved with Ariel’s diverse population, providing help where needed to children, the elderly, and immigrants – and also spurring further growth and urban development.
Thirty hand-picked Ariel University students live in Ariel’s pioneering neighborhood. They hail from a variety of backgrounds – and nearly 25% are new immigrant students from the former Soviet Union (FSU), Ethiopia, the USA, and South Africa. For them, the Student Village provides a second family.
As part of their personal commitment to the Ariel Student Village, each participating student leads a volunteer project for local Ariel residents. Students receive stipends to augment their cost of living, as well as social support from the Yachad B’Ariel nonprofit organization.
Students lead projects in a variety of sectors, including:
Your support of the Ariel Student Village is, by definition, a double investment. Your donation not only supports a student completing his or her studies, but also keeps their volunteer work alive. Whether you choose to adopt a student by contributing towards their scholarship, or you choose to sponsor any of the student projects and programs, your generosity will help both communities. It’s one cause with many levels of impact.
