Kyla Wegman

I wanted to volunteer in Israel before going to graduate school. While I’ve always felt connected to Israel, I feel a stronger connection now since this is my home for the next 10 months.

I don’t think many people get to have an experience like this. I have a lot of room to grow, explore, meet new people and learn a new culture. Israel is such a fascinating country, so technologically advanced. The children need to learn English if they want to put these resources to good use. I’m so proud to be facilitating this experience.
