Goodwill in the Emek

A program of community action established for the purpose of strengthening the population of Emek HaMa’ayanot and Beit She’an by empowering society’s weaker population sectors. Chivruta, which devotes itself to its core value of community engagement, coordinates the program activities each year for 200 young participants. Activities comprise volunteer work in settlements, institutions, and organizations throughout the Emek and Beit She’an. They run educational, social, and communal programs for children and youth in formal and informal educational settings, as well as for seniors, the disabled, and people with special needs. All activities are  conducted in collaboration with the Emek settlement communities, forging relationships and creating special bonds which prove to be both empowering and enriching for all sides.
