South Africa is the first community outside of Israel and North America to be a part of this exceptional programme, which is run by Gilad Spitalnik, Johannesburg Diller Teen Fellows co-ordinator, at the Israel Centre.
The programme included bi-weekly workshops and weekend retreats throughout the year. The programme also included a three-week seminar in Israel and a 10-day peer-to-peer exchange in South Africa with their Israeli counterpart group from the Partnership2Gether region of Beith Shemesh – Mateh Yehudah.
The programme has proven to be extremely successful. The teens were also involved in launching four different programmes that will have a real impact in the community on a daily basis.
