Youth Futures has been assisting children and families at-risk since 2006, and now is operating in 37 towns and cities throughout Israel’s underserved social and geographic periphery. Youth Futures employs a unique holistic approach, with specially-trained “Mentors” serving as significant adults in the lives of the child and their parents served over a three-year period. The Mentors accompany the families through a process of positive change. Mentors constitute the prime intervention tool and are the key factor for the success of the process.

Our Model

Youth Futures” developed a platform in which its Mentors are the primary means of intervention – becoming the key factor in facilitating the success of the children and their families. The Mentors are recruited from the respective communities in which they will serve – ensuring that they have the necessary cultural sensitivities and awareness needed to successfully initiate and manage the holistic process of change. The Mentors are specially-trained and work full-time positions.


Challenges Become Successes

Spheres of Intervention

Mentors provide their holistic support system across four spheres – Personal, Familial, Social, and Educational. This approach is based on the understanding that there are interactive relationships between members of society and various experiential spheres.


Domains of Impact

Youth Futures mobilizes the family, the municipality or local authority, the educational system, and community institutions and members as well as additional circles of influence around the child. The cooperation between the stake-holders yields new and unique responses leading to the development and growth of all the partners to the process.
