With COVID disrupting the opportunity for students to participate in their Year 10 Israel program in 2020 and 2021, Yalla Israel offers an alternate opportunity for Year 12 2022 and 2023 to experience Israel as a young adult straight after high school.
Yalla Israel is a unique, 4 week Israel experience, designed specifically for young adults to explore Israel, create new friendships and connections, and to develop their independence. This program is open to all 2022 and 2023 Year 12 graduates from around Australia* who have not already participated in a Year 10 or an alternate Year 11 High School Israel program.
2022 Year 12 graduates were eligible to participate in 2023 trips.
2023 Year 12 graduates will be able to participate in the December 2024 trip.
Subsidies are available and there is also the opportunity to apply for means tested financial assistance for those that are eligible (see “financial assistance”).

Who is behind
Yalla Israel is a collaboration between Y2i, who support the Year 10 Israel Trips in NSW, ACT and QLD and the Israel for Youth Foundation who support the UJEB Year 10 Israel Experience in VIC, TAS, SA, NT & WA.
Together, we aim to ensure that students who missed out on their Year 10 or alternate Year 11 High School Israel trip can still have a fantastic experience after school finishes.
Yalla Israel aims to make this trip as accessible and affordable as possible and communal donors have made it possible for us to subsidise this program for those who require it*.
