The Mickey Leland Kibbutzim Internship Foundation sends 10 high school juniors annually to Israel for a six-week work and travel experience. The foundation's board, composed of multicultural representatives and alumni, choose the participants. The majority of the interns are either Asian, black, Hispanic or white, and they must meet a set of criteria that includes strong academics, leadership skills and outside recommendations. Prior to the students' departure, they must attend a four-part seminar on Israel and the Middle East. During June, the interns fly to Israel, where they experience life on a kibbutz and examine Israeli and Middle Eastern life. Activities include interacting with Israeli Arabs and Jews, working on archeological digs, touring the holy sites of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, visiting a youth village and spending one week residing in the home of an Israeli family. The program specifically looks for students who are leaders and can work without supervision. While a guide is with them in Israel, no adult from the Houston community participates. In both Israel and the United States, students lead seminars on ethnic and racial diversity before school groups, churches and other corporate and nonprofit organizations.
