Sample Life Skill Topics
The Academy of Life Training aims to equip our students with the knowledge and know-how to develop in three core areas of their life: professional development, social life/relationships, and spiritual development. ALT offers single-gender trips where our inspiring staff share valuable life skills culled from their observant Jewish tradition. The topics which will be covered in learning sessions are specifically chosen due to their relevance to the average young adult nearing the transition from academia into the work world.

Touring & Awesome Trips!
We assume that most of our participants have done Birthright trips or visited Israel as a tourist. Our trips focus on exposing our students to parts of Israel the average tourist doesn’t get to see.
In addition to fun activities & beautiful hikes, we will try to show you the beauty of the Land of Israel and her inhabitants.

About the ALT Vision
The Academy of Life Training (ALT) is the ideal environment for developing life skills while growing from a great internship in Israel. 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.
All 2-month programs are run in partnership with Onward Israel. There are separate 2-month women sessions and men sessions in both Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem during the summer, whereas in the winter we only have 2-month Jerusalem sessions. Each session is expected to have a small-group feel.

Find a direction for life… before the river sweeps you away
That’s what they said
“Without my time in Israel, I wouldn’t have known how to handle the challenges of every day life”
“Growing up I never knew what I wanted from my life… I just knew I wanted to succeed. Finding my path before I started my career was the best decision I ever made!”
“Every day I think about the lessons and direction I gained from my time with the ALT team.”
