The Freedom Theatre receives volunteers from all corners of the world who come to share their skills in solidarity with the people in Jenin. They prefer to host volunteers on a more long-term basis, at least two to three months, or recurring volunteers who come for a shorter time each year. THey also have an internship program.
They do not pay volunteers but provide free accommodation for all volunteers in their guesthouse and cover all work-related costs such as local transportation.
Important qualifications in all volunteers is that they are responsible, able to take initiative and work independently, as well as function as team members. Another prerequisite is that volunteers are willing to respect the local culture, even if it means making adjustments or sacrifices. Arabic speakers are prioritised.
Volunteer applications are reviewed twice a year. Deadlines for applications are approximately mid-December and mid-June. Before the deadline, upcoming volunteer opportunities will be announced.
In the event that any additional volunteer needs come up in between the review dates, they will be announced on this page. To apply for any of the volunteer positions, send an email with your CV and cover letter.
If you are accepted as a volunteer, you will receive a Volunteer Guide with more detailed information about The Freedom Theatre, our community and how to get here.
