“Youth Aliyah is not only a way to restore to the children in its care their physical and emotional well-being, but also a trust in human love and respect.”
Youth Aliyah Child Rescue provides a nurturing home for children at risk where they can live, learn, and heal together.
For eighty five years, Youth Aliyah Child Rescue has been transforming the lives of vulnerable and at-risk children in Israel and from across the world.
Children are provided with a warm and supportive home for life in one of our five Youth Villages and two leadership programmes, where they are given everything they need to live happy, fulfilling and productive lives.
Our “Village Way” educational approach has won the World of Children Alumni Award, a global recognition of those working to dramatically improve the lives of children. This award is often cited as the Nobel Prize for Children’s Advocates.
Thousands of children from Israel and around the world have benefitted from our life-changing work.
Today more than 400,000 children in Israel have been deemed at-risk by welfare authorities. With decades of experience, we know how to take them ‘from survival to leadership’. With your help we can continue to reach more children.
The five Villages we support are:
T.O.M. (Torah u’Mikzo’ah)
The Mechina programmes
Under the auspices of the Village Way, our Mechina, pre-military programmes were born. Our Mechina is the only one designed to empower young Israeli people from immigrant backgrounds with the necessary skills to excel in their mandatory military services. The programme also helps ensure that our graduates can thrive in their civilian life that follows. In stark contrast to other programmes, our Mechina participants do not pay to attend. There are separate programmes for men and women.
What is The Village Way?
In 2006, Israel’s Ministry of Education urged Yemin Orde Youth Village to expand its unique and successful circle of care to thousands of other at-risk children throughout Israel and, consequently, The Village Way was launched.
The Village Way is a professional educational facilitation team that works with educators in each community to integrate the Village Way programme.
Currently the Village Way works with 36 communities around the country and we aim to work with 59 more by 2021.
