Yedidim, Israel’s premier social services organization, touches the lives of over 3,000 children, teens, and young adults each year throughout 160 groups across the country with the help of 1,700 volunteers.

For 25 years, Yedidim has been reshaping the lives of troubled youth and immigrant children in the hopes of building a better, safer, and more just Israel.

Founded in 1991, Yedidim’s sole mission is working towards the betterment of Israeli society with the goal that all Israeli youth, regardless of their background, have the opportunity to fully realize their talents and potential. The Yedidim model combines one-on-one mentoring, ‘group work’, and community service. The results are transformative for participants and their families, professionals, and Israeli society at large.
