The Yedidut Toronto Foundation and the Israel Association of Community Centers will launch programs across Israel to help with assessment, training and job placement for disadvantaged communities or those facing financial difficulties.The program will help hundreds of women and young people improve their financial situations on an annual basis. The initiative will operate through IACC's network of "Community Colleges," which will provide vocational and academic studies within local community centers throughout the country. This would ensure that those in need of the programs' services will not be required to travel to education and employment centers in major cities.2020 will serve as a pilot year. Initial programs will be rolled out and evaluated in several different locations beginning in January and will then be expanded to additional places nationwide in partnership with related government programs.
