A program whereby youths create a meaningful connection with a "big brother/sister" (mentor) who helps them – individually or in groups – to improve their study skills, their ability to cope with emotional issues and their self-esteem. At the same time, mentors serve as a role model and a breath of fresh air in the youths' lives. As part of the program, the mentors also assist in organizing special events for the youth in the program and at the end of the year the mentors and the youth together produce a final project.
How it works
Students who participate in the program commit to 159 hours throughout the academic year, which are divided into five weekly hours, on average. These hours are divided into 112 hours of activity and 47 hours of instruction and training. Instructional and training sessions take place on Sundays 17:00 and 19:00.
A scholarship of up to NIS 7,000, contingent on putting in the hours and reporting them.
