Educating for Excellence
Every child deserves access to exciting and empowering learning opportunities that enhance individual potential and open new horizons. KKL-JNF’s informal educational programs, implemented throughout Israel and especially in social and geographical peripheries, are changing thousands of young lives and clearing the way to higher education opportunities and successful careers in groundbreaking fields.
One successful catalyst of change is the KKL-JNF Heritage Centers, bright and modern facilities conducive to learning, providing youth in the periphery with opportunities for academic and personal enrichment and development. Another is the MAOF–Reaching New Heights program, which promotes core values and environmental awareness through after-school and community events, field trips, and more.
Through programs that increase environmental awareness and community engagement, KKL-JNF is cultivating a new generation of responsible leaders. Activities for youth and volunteers include work in forests to decrease the risk of forest fires; cleaning nature reserves, beaches and other open spaces; building community forests and renovating and maintaining historical and archeological sites.
