Every year more than 15,000 children drop out of the conventional education system in Israel. Some of these children are referred to alternative educational frameworks. Often however, these so-called dropouts are left without an alternative framework, or the existing frameworks do not suit them.

In the past few years, a new educational model has evolved that highlights the importance of obtaining a profession. This is especially effective for youngsters who “fall through the cracks” of the conventional education system.
