  • Kibbutz. A voluntary democratic community in Israel where people live and work on a communal basis in an economy oriented to agricultural or factory production.
  • Outdoor Work. There are agricultural jobs overseas and summer camp work, but hours are long and the pay is low. Also see the World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms Web page.

Study abroad is like spring training for this century. It helps you develop the fundamentals, the teamwork, and the determination to succeed."
