The activity of Beyahad: Anya Benya is founded on the perception that youth leads youth, as the alumni function as role models to the juniors. The movement operates to empower girls and boys through the belief in the potential of every one of them.
Each of our branches accentuates the same educational and social values:
* Empowering apprentices and youth counselors through various enriching activities opens an aperture to opportunities existing in Israeli society.
* Forming connections for the Israeli society in its entirety and creating a sense of belonging from a young age for the cohesion and unification of the Israeli society.
* Leadership education, initiative, engagement, and responsibility-taking under the belief that the movement’s apprentices and youth counselors are the future generations
Apprentices, youth counselors, and coordinators
The movement’s apprentices – children and adolescents are 3rd to 8th-grade students.
The movement’s youth counselors – are adolescents 9-12 grade students.
The movement’s coordinators are youth after the military or national service
“Our work is first and foremost educational. We believe in youth counselors and encourage them to dream, initiate and accomplish.”
Tssipy Pecado, Netanya branch coordinator.
Our movement develops and works with constant pedagogical lesson plans taught to apprentices and youth counselors alike and, as always, gives the freedom of independent thinking and personal initiative.
The signature program of our movement is an instruction course that conveys and reinforces such values as leadership, initiative, social engagement, responsibility, and capability. The movement’s counselors attain close personal accompaniment from the coordinators and seminars on various topics such as: getting to know the IDF, the world of academia, the high-tech world, and projects for social engagement like the “Gesher” program for distributing food baskets to senior citizens.
“The movement taught me not to give up on my goals, always believe that I can succeed, and not allow anything to make me think otherwise. The movement has always been there for me. I got help as well as a sympathetic ear throughout the entire journey. After 12 years of studying, I graduated and have a complete matriculation certificate with the movement’s support. Thanks to this, I hold my head up high, have a job with which I make a living, and believe in myself unlike ever before.”
Benchi Mengistu, youth counselor, and movement alumni.
