Youth Centers

FIDEL has been operating Youth Centers for Ethiopian-Israelis across Israel throughout the past 13 years.  FIDEL’s youth centers provide youth with personal, educational and social enrichment in underprivileged neighborhoods.

Professional youth workers serve as role models and provide personal guidance and emotional support.  FIDEL staff are lauded by Israel Police for their intervention ensuring that youth at risk find a remedial path. In cases where the youth have been apprehended, staff often succeed in having the police file (jeopardizing future IDF service) dismissed. Volunteers operate workshops, provide one-on-one mentor-ship and nurture relationships with the teens.  They include retired citizens, IDF service-year soldiers, post high school volunteers and intern volunteers from overseas.
