Schools for Youth At Risk

Through innovative dialogue and project-based learning, our award-winning high schools, boarding schools, and pre-military academy empower children from troubled backgrounds and for whom traditional schools are not effective. Teachers work around the clock with families, psychologists, and social workers to turn lives around.

 

With schools in: Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Kiryat Ata, Ravid, Eshbal, Ramleh, Karmiel, and Mitzpeh Ramon, we reach over 1,100 students yearly.

During COVID-19 we have kept our high schools and boarding schools open, even when other schools were forced to close, keeping vulnerable teens out of abusive homes, off the streets, and in the safe, supportive environment they need.

“Our students may have failed in regular schools. We show them school is a place to succeed. They don’t have to be victims, they can be responsible leaders instead.”
