“I want to tell you that this program has helped me a lot, and I thank you with all my heart. I’m now succeeding in math and have made lots of progress in many other subjects as well. I feel more confident. I pay much more attention to my homework. And we have a lot of fun in this program. Thank you, and please continue to help others that need help.”

The Institute aims to lower the drop-out rate among Israeli youth-at-risk in grades 7 to 9 by closing educational gaps, developing social empowerment and providing support programs for parents.

“At the age of 16, I was expelled from my home and had to live in the streets. What kept me going was my love of studies and dedication to obtaining an academic degree. Through Access for All, I got the help I needed to change my path in life by improving my social skills and academic knowledge to become a productive member of Israeli society.”

Access for All targets groups such as new immigrants, battered women, youth at risk and ethnic minorities, and enables them to acquire knowledge in such fields as economics, medicine, psychology, and computer science.

“As a new immigrant, adjusting to life in Israel wasn’t easy. Then I connected to Net@. I studied, I made friends. And now I’m a lab manager. We repair computers and now it’s me who is helping other people to connect.”

Net@ in Beer Sheva empowers high school youth from the city’s most disadvantaged neighbourhoods with technological instruction and computer skills that not only provide an educational boost, but also a range of professional life skills for securing employment and success.

“I am finishing the academic preparatory program at the Technion Institute and I will begin studying towards my bachelor’s degree next fall. I always dreamed of a Technion diploma but I come from a family of seven, and it seemed out of reach. Without the support and encouragement I received in the Sparks of Science program, I wouldn’t have made it this far.”

Sparks of Science is a four-year supplementary study program for high school students of Ethiopian origin that aims to develop their talents and scientific potential, and integrate them into the advanced industries work force.
