Big Brother

During afterschool hours, students mentor a group of schoolchildren recommended by the Welfare Department, in return for a scholarship. Rishon Lezion 

The Problem

A huge proportion of school children from Israel's "better" neighborhoods employ the services of private tutors to ensure their academic success. But not everyone can afford such extra support, and it is often those who need it most who must go without.

The Solution

Provide tutoring and help with homework, as well as organized afternoon social activities for children aged 10 to 12.

The Method

University students tutor and mentor 4th-6th grade children from disadvantaged backgrounds for 2 hours a week. In exchange, the students receive a grant toward their studies.
