There are over 400,000 at risk and special education teens in Israel (in both the Jewish and Arabic sector) who grow up with a weakened sense of self-efficacy. These teens often experience failure that causes them to get involved in high-risk behaviors such as violence, crime or alcohol and drug use. This is often due to their inability to envision a different future for themselves, and because they feel unable to break the boundaries of their life's situation.
Our model is based on Design Thinking, an innovative approach that promotes creative thinking, teamwork, and student responsibility for learning. With this combination we constructed a 3 year program that enables us to empower the teens, build their self efficacy and connect them to their community. By helping them to build a stronger community we create more involved resident and caring citizens - a meaningful and long lasting impact both for the teens and for the community.
