Our summer program is open to students who fit the following criteria:

  • They are between the ages of 18-23 (this excludes our post high school students on Ascend who are allowed to be 17)
  • They have not done an Onward program is the past including any of our SIJ programs or Ascend
  • For Ascend – while we keep some spots for students who did a gap year in Israel, it is primarily for students who have not spent more than 3 months in Israel consecutively over the age of 18.
  • Please also note that for our Ascend program, coming on this program will eliminate students’ birthright eligibility. We encourage students to attend a birthright trip prior to their Ascend experience.
