Kfar Hassidim Youth Village


Located near Haifa, at the eastern base of the Carmel Mountain, Kfar Hassidim Youth Village addresses special needs of teenage immigrants and at-risk Israeli teenagers, providing them with a junior high school and high school education and a second home. Extracurricular activities, after school programs, therapeutic support, and professional training will enable these teenagers to assume productive roles in their own community and Israeli society.

Educational philosophy: The Village’s vision is to be a second home, providing the environment and atmosphere to fully support students’ growth and development. The focus is on helping each student set goals, acquire self-appreciation, and reach their full potential. For new immigrants, our approach includes helping them successfully integrate into a vastly different culture.

History
Kfar Hassidim Youth Village was established in 1937 by the Religious Kibbutz Movement; its mission was to settle immigrant youth into their new home.
For more than six decades, Kfar Hassidim has been among the leaders successfully settling children into the Jewish homeland.

Today, Kfar Hassidim Youth Village has stepped up to the challenge of working with teenage immigrants and native Israelis from throughout the country, from vastly different cultures and backgrounds. Often, these teenagers come from unstable home situations, or are borderline learning disabled and fall “between the cracks” in their local school system. With the support of the staff at Kfar Hassidim, these young people aspire to obtaining a high school diploma, entering the army or a national service program, getting higher education, securing a job, and ultimately, establishing their homes and families in Israel.
