Programs of Excellence ‎

A bi-annual course for high-potential youth from disadvantaged populations, providing educational enrichment in biology, physics, chemistry, marine science and ecology, along with life skills and leadership training.

The Problem

There are many bright, promising, young students who, due to financial constraints, have little access to the enrichment courses that might pique their intellectual curiosity, open new fields to them and propel them on to a path of academic endeavor. Both they, and society, miss out.

The Solution

Providing unique, free courses to talented youngsters helps them fulfill their potential with a challenging enrichment program and leadership training.

The Method

The project targets two groups of motivated, underprivileged teenagers from Netanya. The two year course, given once a week for 3 hours, includes biology, physics, chemistry, marine science and ecology. Participants are collected from school and given lunch when they arrive at the Ruppin Marine Science Institute in Mevuoth Yam, Michmoret. The course offers not only academic advancement, but also leadership and life skills.

Participants

36 teenagers (14-16), from 8th & 9th grades

 Location

Ruppin Marine Science Institute, Michmoret
