Youth Futures has been operating among at-risk children and families since 2006 in 36 towns and cities located in Israel’s social and geographic periphery. Youth Futures employs the Mentor Model – a unique holistic model comprising a significant adult who accompanies the child and their parents over a three-year process of change. The mentor constitutes the prime intervention tool and key factor for the success of the process whereby Youth Futures empowers the children, families, schools, and entire community.

Our Model

“Youth Futures” has developed a new paradigm wherein the mentors serve as the primary intervention medium and the key factor in achieving the success of the children and their families. The mentors, who undergo professional training, are enlisted from within the respective communities.


Challenges Become Successes

Spheres of Intervention

Youth Futures is an intervention program that aims to provide children and their families the necessary support, assistance and guidance to realize the full potentials they possess. To this end, the mentors provide a holistic support system across four spheres of one’s life.


Spheres of Impact

Youth Futures harnesses the family, the local authority, the educational system and the entire community toward the success of the process and thus indirectly also impacts additional circles of influence around the child.
