Summer Appeal 2022 – Ayanot Youth Village

In Israel, It Takes a Village

group of teenagers in Israel

Your help is urgently needed! Ayanot Youth Village, a unique center of innovation, will be renovating its facilities in order to accommodate an exciting new program. This program will open its doors to a new professional college in cooperation with the IDF (Israel Defense Force).

Ayanot needs to begin these facilities renovations and upgrades as soon as possible. The approximate cost of the renovations to classrooms and dorms will be $120,000. NA’AMAT USA aims to raise $50,000 during their summer appeal to bring the classrooms up to the standards needed to provide this amazing opportunity.

This program will give our students a “head start” in the career of practical architecture and can help launch them into an affiliated career after serving in the IDF. Please help us meet this latest challenge. You’ve been there before and we count on your help now.
