Yemin Orde Educational Initiatives is an independent entity (an educational “think-tank”) which has its home at the Yemin Orde Village. Headed by a team of educational specialists, it provides teacher training, workshops, interventions and other special programmes to professionals at youth villages, high schools and university.
The innovative and timely educational solutions – widely praised for their excellence – are directed by educational visionary Dr. Chaim Peri who has successfully developed its philosophy and novel programmes over the course of 30 years at Yemin Orde.
YOEI directly impact on Israel’s struggling youth village populations, reenergizing educators and thus enabling children in their care to become Israel’s future leaders.
Today, the impact of YOEI is far-reaching, across Israel and beyond: Its methodologies are integrated into university-level education courses (Oranim University, Haifa) and in Israel’s public school system. It has assisted and inspired other projects for at-risk children in such diverse places as the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda, Arise Academy Charter High School in Philadelphia and San Pasqual Academy in San Diego.
“Our educational initiatives has shown us the importance of every small detail... I leave every workshop with so much knowledge and new ways to think.”
