LIFE SKILLS

I DREAMT

4 years later, I managed to make my dream come true. Youths labeled as “at risk” can choose another way.

To dream, to learn, to narrow the gaps and succeed, to give back to society and not be a burden. To believe they can and to work towards their goals.

I INITIATED

I recruited around 50 good people I did not previously know. I built a social business for training, employment, and entrepreneurship for youths who are at risk in the fields of design and technology. We renovated a building in a joint effort and raised money for the purchasing of equipment and computers for the classroom.

I BUILT

In a joint effort with the Haifa Municipal Occupation Center and the Wizo Academic Center, I built a program for training in branding and website construction with a strong emphasis on life skills, and personal and group coaching.

I RECRUITED

In collaboration with the Haifa Municipal Occupation Center, I recruited 13 “at risk” youths through welfare services, charities, and other organizations throughout the city.

100% finished training

76.92%- 10 out 13 finished the program

7 out of 13 started studying at higher education institutions

IT'S A STORY ABOUT

Active philanthropy is one of the pillars of a healthy and prosperous civilian corporation that gives an economic driving force for growth and active citizenship.

A culture of social involvement and giving back to the community promotes development and implementation of solutions for problems in different sectors of Israeli society.

Supporting a social business makes a small business grow and enlarges job opportunities, in addition to giving the less fortunate the means and skills to support themselves.

What is a social business?


A social business is a corporation established for the purpose of alleviating or bringing to public awareness a social or environmental challenge via corporate management methods. A social business aims for a double gain- both in terms of finances and achieving social/environmental goals. The first and foremost target, of course, is achieving said goals, but after that comes gaining profits. A social business attempts to attain these social goals through business- and strives for profits to be its main source of funding, if not the only one. The success of a social business will come to be seen through a growth in profits in parallel to the attainment of said goals. Social businesses are a new type of businesses and are established in many different sectors and tackle various problems.
