Spreading the Philosophy
|Success brings an obligation to share.
Yemin Orde Educational Initiatives is designed to broaden the impact of the Yemin Orde education philosophy to help the world’s at-risk youth population live a secure and productive life.
For example, the YOEI approach is implemented at Rwanda’s Agahozo Shalom Youth Village and is seen in Yemin Orde’s Mechina, a pre-military leadership program for immigrant youth in Hatzor, Israel. In the United States, the values of Yemin Orde are part of the programming and educational approach at Philadelphia’s Arise Academy Charter High School and at San Diego’s San Pasqual Academy.
The overall goal of the Educational Initiatives is to have a positive impact on the education system of Israeli society. This paradigm shift in educational philosophy is facilitated through the Derech Kfar (The Village Way) Educational Institute – the heart of Yemin Orde Educational Initiatives.
Derech Kfar (The Village Way) Educational Institute
Institute programs take place in four different forums:
In October 2007, the Ministry of Education formally endorsed Yemin Orde’s methodologies as the “leading conceptual and applicable framework of [the government’s] "rejuvenation of youth villages in Israel" program.
Derech Kfar's methodology focuses on transforming declining youth villages into dynamic frameworks for youth at-risk. Derech Kfar aims to “deinstitutionalize” the institutions and to provide these children with the security and advantages that every child deserves.
