I volunteered during my student days and had a great pleasure and personal benefit of being part of this project. Very happy to see the huge success!
As a supporter from outside Israel the purpose,the transparency,the feedback and the report I received are extremely well prepared. It is agreat organization.
During my years of employment in Comverse, I was the first link between Tzeva, the nonprofit organization and the business corporate. From my point of view, Tzeva is one of the solid structured, target driven, and efficient non profit organization I have ever encountered. Its management know how to maintain the relationship between the corporate and the organization, allow the organizations to become not just a donor of money and volunteers but also to become a partner to the vision and achievements. A business corporate can easily recognizes a methodology in Tzeva's activity within school centers and have a clear understanding how resources of the corporate are used to support the kids and teach them how to build their better future by receiving a list of budget reports, describing usage of the donation. Today, since I truly believe in the necessity of this nonprofit organization, I've become a general member of Tzeva.
I've been volunteering in Tzeva for a year now, once a week for 2.5 hours. I saw how this organization contributes to the children, by helping with homework, giving them social tools through tasks, games and even just because they get another place in which they interact with other children and grownups. During the year you could see children change (even if it is a small change) get a little more self esteem, and you could see they love this structure - since the punishment for extremely bad behaviour was not showing up to the next 2 meetings, and they really feared from it...
Tzeva is a place for good will to spread aroud in circles of influence. The Tzeva centers are populated with people who has one commone quality- they all care about our society, and about our children's right for equal opportunity. This concerns employees, volunteers and even the children themselves, who learn to kknow their own value and potential during the Tzeva activities. What makes Tzeva so special, is the fact that every aspect of it's actions is designed to fulfil the Tzeva future vision- society of active, volunteering members, who takes charge of their own future. Tzeva is a place where values of professionalism, respect, creativity and caring merge together into a beautiful activity.
i volunteer in Tzeva, this is my second year. Doing it on weekly basis. generally i'm helping kids with homework, help them to understand the "real world" with examples from work/life. i enjoy a great administrative support as well as practical and professional help from the organization management i.e suggest how to handle specific problem with one fo the kids/how to deal with special behaviors etc.
I'm volunteering in Tzeva for 7 years already, first 4 in the Neve Sharet center in Tel aviv and in the last 5 in the board of directors, trying to help the organization in its marketing, fund raising and social activities. Tzeva is a truly unique organization with great management and staff that lead an educational non profit in the same standards as a high tech startup company. I'm a great believer in the goals of the organization and the belief that through voluntarism and empowerment of the younger generation we can change the future of the society in Israel. Tzeva is bringing this dream to life every day!
It is HARD to describe my feeling when I talk about TZEVA, I am volunteering in TZEVA for 7 years now and I don't see me stop volunteering any time soon. They say that home is where the heart is, if that is true TZEVA has been my home for the last 7 years, every week during activity time getting to the school (I've been in few) I volunteer in, meeting the children and teaching and learning with them. I've met lots of interesting people while volunteering which I'm still in touch after they stopped coming. I remember every child I've been in contact with and every one of them thought me something about life and I hope I have given them all they needed from me. During the summer, in which time the activity is in pause till the start of the school year, I usually feel that some part of my life is missing and that part fill again when the year start, and there is a new beginning.
This is the 3th year i volunteer to Tzeva. I am doing it since i was 23 years old. It feels great helping kids who need to get better at school and give them values and tools to deal correctly in society. We can see the results during the year and be sure that the kids will take what we gave them to there future.
This is the 4th year i volunteer to Tzeva. I am doing it since i was 21 years old. It feels great helping kids who need to get better at school and give them values and tools to deal correctly in society. We can see the results during the year and be sure that the kids will take what we gave them to there future.
