The Young Leadership Organization was established in 2007 as a public welfare company (PBC) and has been running since then to narrow gaps in Israeli society through the development of employment initiatives.
We believe everyone has the right to advance in life and succeed. Hence, we run a variety of programs for populations excluded from the labor market and work for empowerment. Activities take place throughout the country, focusing on the social periphery (suburbs), and are based on connection to the world of industry and the business sector. We use business tools as a platform for social change that we generate.

Vision for Businesses
Training program for small business owners

Our success is the return to the community, business development of currently owned businesses and business development for owners and additional creative positions for workers today are not integrated in the labor market.
Vision for the Youth
Employment preparation program for youth at risk and distress.
Established as a pilot project in 2013 in cooperation with the Foundation for Children and Youth at Risk of the National Insurance Institute. At the time of its founding program, you could count 5 groups of teenagers (total 75 participants). Since then, the program is growing significantly, and today there are 24 active groups every year. Today, the program provides a wide variety of youth at risk and distress (including the mentally ill). Also, the last two years there was developed professional expertise working with the Bedouin society in the North and South.
Training and integration of academics from the Arab society in high-tech
The program is a collaboration between young business leadership and the Portland Foundation and Eshkol Sharon in collaboration with the Innovation Authority, and was designed together with leading business companies in the Israeli economy. The cooperation with the business companies is at the basis of the program, which take part in the planning, training and placement of the graduates. The program aims to place approximately 150 workers in the first two years and another 120 each year thereafter.
