Women Empowerment Program

Throughout the years, we've noticed that many of the Ma'agalim female graduates have struggled with completing their National Service year. We identified the group as girls with difficult socio-economic and family backgrounds, who chose to pursue National Service instead of joining the IDF. Due to their difficult upbringing, the girls didn't know how to fill their evenings upon completing the mandatory 8-hour daily program.

Leaving home for the first time, with no educational or other framework, has often led them to inappropriate behaviors and eventually to dropping out of the program.

To combat this issue, we created the Women Empowerment Program dedicated to girls from disadvantaged populations. The program provides a supportive environment with a focus on personal empowerment, and is an opportunity of giving, learning, personal development and a change to broaden their horizons and acquire important life skills.

The program is geared towards Ma'agalim alumni who want to continue being part of the Ma'agalim family during their National Service year – a year in which they no doubt give back to the community, and build up their personalities.

The program is led by a team of professionals and experts and spans various fields. It includes workshops, lectures and enrichment activities designed to prepare them for an independent civilian life, and introduce them to diverse higher education and employment options.

Another program available is the 'Ma'agal BaLev' program, in collaboration with the 'Association for Volunteering' within the National Service framework.

Ma'agal BaLev is hosted by a Ma'agalim mentor twice a week, and includes team-building activities, leadership development and personal empowering coaching, alongside professional enrichment programs including nutrition, employment guidance, financial management, relationships and more.

The program is currently operational in a few cities, and focuses on National Service in education, mentoring, health and administration.

In conclusion, the Women Empowerment Program and Ma'agal BaLev Program provide support and guidance during 3 significant periods:

  • Pre-service: Assistance in selecting appropriate, significant and growth-oriented service for each participant.
  • Service: Forming a leadership group and creating an experiential, successful and meaningful year of service for each participant.
  • Post-Service: Providing guidance and training in various areas of employment.
