♦ Alternative Education: We ensure that the boys are given the education that they need to succeed; we have several Yeshiva programs in Jerusalem as well as courses and private tutoring. We give the boys the opportunities they need to become productive members of society.
♦ Hosted Shabat: Shabat at a suitable family; not only instilling Shabat in the boys as a positive experience but also giving youth the chance to reconnect to spirituality in a relaxed comfortable way.
♦ Counsellors: We have counsellors in each neighbourhood that try and find the problems whilst they are still small ensuring no boy ends up drifting away from home unnecessarily.
♦ Personal guidance: No two boys are the same. From the moment a boy comes under Histagloot’s wing, we do our utmost to provide him with the personal care and attention that he needs.
For a number of years, Histagloot has been active in saving youth at risk on many levels. We are there to help boys just beginning to stray; before they are kicked out of the system they are in and we are also there in the most extreme cases with boys who are involved in crime; drinking and drugs. We step in and save the lives of children who feel they have nothing to lose when in fact their lives have hardly begun.
♦ Rehabilitation on the farm: Boys who are beyond being integrated into a normal education system are sent to our farm in the Shomron, the Samaria region, where they are given the opportunity to regain their sense of purpose through work; from looking after the animals to producing olive oil and cheese, the boys are given another chance, another lease on life.
