The population served by YVC is distinguished both by its diversity – encompassing virtually the entire spectrum of Israeli Jewish and Arab society – and by its pressing desire for academic education.
Join YVC as it steps forward to meet this demand, to fulfill its role as a driver of social and economic growth for the individual, region and nation
Empowering Arab-Israeli Students
YVC is developing a program to identify Arab-Israeli students – particularly women – and give them the training to help them find work in the high-tech industry. Increasing the number of Arab women in this well-paying industry will strengthen Israel’s economy, raise the standard of living in the Arab sector, improve the status of Arab women, and help increase tolerance and understanding between the Arab and Jewish communities.
A gift of $3,000 will provide an annual scholarship for one student.
Scholarships towards higher education enable talented and motivated, but economically challenged young people break out of the cycle of poverty and achieve upward social mobility.
Establishing a scholarship fund will significantly extend YVC’s capacity to empower eligible students, and catalyze meaningful and impactful social change.
A scholarship endowment of $1 million will be equally matched by YVC to create a Scholarship Endowment Fund that will provide students scholarships, annually.
Adopt a Student
In Israel and abroad, a growing number of supporters are realizing their potential to change a life, a community and Israeli society. By “adopting” a student, you can cover the tuition fees for a qualified but economically challenged individual. With this critical support, you will enable your adopted student(s) to concentrate on their studies, successfully secure their academic degree, and break out of the cycle of poverty, to become contributing members and leaders in Israeli society.
A gift of $3,000/year over three years supports one student through the completion of a BA degree.
