Urban post-high school service-learning programs for Israeli youth

Aharai! B'ir offers educational programs that develop young leadership and promote social engagement between youth from varying sectors of society.

The curriculum prepares the participants for a more engaged national service and gives them a sense of confidence about their place in society. 
By connecting motivated young participants to Israel's history, students gain a sense of achievement and responsibility to contribute as citizens in Israel; and by connecting them to their Jewish identities, they find their role within the wider global Jewish community. 
Participants also volunteer within their local communities.
The educational team includes dedicated experienced counselors who offer guidance throughout the program and even into the participants' military service.
