Who are we?
The Kedma Youth village is a unique home for teens at the ages of 13 to 18 years, studying in the 8th-12th grade, coming to us from all over the country. These are teens who have dropped out of all education programs at various stages and from a variety of reasons. Most of them suffer from learning disabilities, behavioral problems and emotional difficulties which do not allow their availability for studying. The educational and therapeutic systems in the village seek to enable these pupils to go through a developmental process, while experiencing change and growth. This is our way to reignite the spark in these pupils, which has already burnt out along the way.
We work to generate a unique educational model of escorting our graduates until the age of 24. A model which provides our pupils with tool to handle life in the modern world. This model begins at school and training in the village, and in collaboration with the Army Air Force, continues into the army service and in escorting the pupils after their discharge into their incorporation into Hi Tech companies.
The village graduates will serve a meaningful army service, with minimum dropouts, while encouraging their participation in pre-army preparatory programs and in volunteering to a Service Year.
