James is a citizen of the United States, who has been volunteering in Israel for 14 years in various different frameworks. These days he volunteers in an institute for the disabled in San Simon, Jerusalem. James came to Israel with his community from Chicago, with a strong desire to change his life path, and to live a life of giving and donating to others. The volunteer visa that he was initially given in Israel was for a very limited time. This time was extended beyond expectations, as each year he requested to extend his stay in Israel, so that he could continue to volunteer here.
