Youth Futures is an unprecedented program of national scope.
We provide at-risk children (6–13 years old) and their families with comprehensive, tailored interventions to enable them to be independent, productive members of society.
At the heart of this program are professionally qualified mentors who are dedicated to social action and change. Mentors work with the children and their families for three years, ensuring they have access to community resources and develop customised plans to bridge critical educational, social and extra-curricular gaps.
What we offer
Mentors begin by taking note of each child’s unique situation - at home, school and within the community to connect the child with the services they need, work with the family to improve their home situation, coordinate enrichment and educational activities with their schools; and plan activities for and with the child to help increase their self-esteem and set goals for a brighter future. Mentors typically work with a group of 16 children.
Youth Futures is a collective commitment that infuses Israel’s disadvantaged regions with real hope for transformative change and excellence. What began as a bold experiment in 2006 now serves over 12,000 children and their families in 36 locations throughout Israel - bringing them from risk to promise.
The program is strengthening family bonds and helps children build a foundation for future success. Years after the program, alumni of the program are able to see the impact that Youth Futures had in helping them gain direction, vision and the tools necessary for building their lives. Youth Futures is the sole program tackling these needs at a national level.
This project is in partnership with The Jewish Agency for Israel, the Government of Israel and local authorities.
