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.

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.

Skills focused on
