Gap Program Year: 2018-2019

Where are you from? Portland, Oregon.

Where are you working this year? I work construction two days a week, where we build tiny homes for people who experience homelessness. During the rest of the week, I work at JOIN, which is a day space for people who experience homelessness and poverty.

Favorite Tivnu activity so far? Cross country skiing! It was truly AMAZING!

Favorite way to refer to Tivnu participants? Tivnuniks

Favorite thing about living in Portland? How accessible things are!

How many Tivnuniks does it take to screw in a light bulb? One, it’s Tivnu quality!

Taking a gap year at home can be as meaningful as doing one abroad.
