IBC for me was the perfect program to facilitate a year of growth, learning and incredible experiences. Throughout the program, I thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of interesting and engaging activities, guest speakers and events, which granted me an authentic insight into Israeli society. Also, through committees and the freedom of living independently, I had the chance to significantly develop my leadership, initiative and communication skills. Equally important, after months of laughter and exploring Israel inside out, I finished the program with deep and enriching friendships. If you are looking for a program with a balance of structure and freedom, familiar and unfamiliar faces, enjoyment and challenge - then you’re looking in the right place.
