Volunteers are an intrinsic part of the ADI family, enriching the lives of ADI’s children with their enthusiasm and love. For their part, our hundreds of volunteers can attest to the difference the children have made in their lives, impacting them immeasurably.

ADI has a multitude of volunteer opportunities to meet each individual’s skill set, preferences, and availability.

At ADI Negev, volunteers are placed in residential units where they will quickly become integrated with the staff. The tasks range from care-giving and supervision to assistance with activities and education. Your professional background and experience can be taken into consideration in deciding work placement. A minimum commitment of 4 weeks is required.

If you are considering volunteer work in Israel, please take into account that the circumstances in Israel are very different to that in other countries. The complex political situation, the summer weather, and various cultural differences may present challenge to foreign volunteers. Yet, they also make for an incredible experience. The most important thing is to come with an open mind and a positive attitude.

Typical day

Wakeup

Shira wakes up to the smiling face of her caregiver, Naama, who showers her, puts on her body brace and splints, and helps her choose her clothes.

Breakfast

Seated in her specialized chair, Shira enjoys her breakfast of scrambled eggs and cereal as Naama helps her grasp a spoon.

School

Shira maneuvers her specially-adapted wheelchair into her classroom, where she greets her six friends, their teacher and assistant. Today, they enjoy petting Bobbie during pet therapy. This is followed by a computer rehab session and a variety of cognitive-development games.

Snack

Shira and her friends participate in a group snack time program, with a communication therapist leading the children in alternative communication devices to express their choices. Today, Danny chooses applesauce and chocolate milk.

Private Therapy

Shira’s physical therapist helps her develop better muscle control and stamina. Shira relaxes in a calming, soundproof room full of lights, colors, aromas, vibrations and music.

Lunch

The speech therapist joins the nutritionist to observe Shira’s improved ability to eat by herself, then plan the next steps in encouraging a higher level of independence.

Rest Time

Shira and her friends close their eyes for a well-deserved rest. Naama finishes her shift and Tali takes her place.

Social Activity

Shira and her friends enjoy a short outing to the nearby playground with a group of volunteers.

Afternoon Fun

Michael, a professional medical clown, blows up balloons and draws huge smiles from Shira and her friends. With Tali’s help, the group finger-paints – one of their favorite activities.

Dinner

Tali follows the new set of instructions left by the speech therapist and Shira tries to get the meatballs and vegetables into her mouth all by herself. Tali jots down a quick report on Shira’s achievements.

Medical Check

In the clinic Shira smiles at the nurses, who check her blood pressure and respiration. A rehabilitative assistant helps clear Shira’s lungs and upper airway from excess secretions.

Bedtime

“Sweet dreams,” whispers Tali, as she secures Shira’s bed rail and tucks her in with a goodnight kiss.

Free-time activities

ADI Negev is at the countryside of Southern Israel, so ideal for Hiking in the wildreness. The facility has a therapeutic swimming pool, which is opened up on Sundays for the volunteers. Furthermore the volunteers are staying together in a volunteer house with other (young) volunteers and have a lot of fun together.
