Tivnu, located in Portland, Oregon, offers one- to ten-day programs, summer programs, and its cornerstone program, the Tivnu Gap Year.

Participate (in person and virtually) in conferences and fairs, and facilitate educational / outreach programs at summer camps, high schools, youth groups, and synagogues, in order to build excitement and awareness about Tivnu and lay the groundwork for application to the gap year program.
