Mandel Program for Youth Leadership

This one-year program aims to assist the senior educational leadership of Israeli youth movements in creating a shared platform for examining various aspects of education today, and of the challenges facing them, given the current social and cultural realities in Israel.

​​​Israel’s youth movements play a highly significant role in fostering commitment among the country’s youth toward forging a better society. In order to help them fulfill this mission, the Mandel Leadership Institute has founded the Mandel Program for Youth Leadership, to serve as a shared platform for examining various aspects of education and of the challenges now facing the youth movements, against the backdrop of the current social and cultural realities in Israel.

The program’s participants are senior leaders of Israeli youth movements who influence the design of the movements’ educational worldviews and activities. The program helps the participants to hone their educational identities, deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge in fields relevant to their work, broaden their familiarity with the educational realities in Israel and abroad, and develop their ability to translate their educational worldviews into practice.

The program is held at the Mandel Leadership Institute in Jerusalem, over the course of one academic year. It comprises lectures, workshops, case studies, field trips, and meetings with educational, social, and cultural figures. Subjects covered include: philosophical, sociological, and psychological aspects of education; social justice and social change; contemporary Jewish and Zionist identity; and challenges facing Israeli society.
