Build the Future of Israel

Our Young Ambassadors – getting ready to enhance Israel’s image to the world

Each Young Ambassador took the stage dressed in white shirt and tie, as befits diplomats and – in under two minutes – succeeded in convincing their audience on an agenda of burning issues.

This is how Israel is preparing the next generation of social leaders in Israel, talented ambassadors who can navigate boundaries with patience and tolerance, acceptance and openness in interpersonal communication.

Our new Young Ambassadors from Zev Boim Sci-Tech School in Kiryat Gat, are talented, dynamic students who’re learning to influence and shape world public opinion with regard to Israel’s image and branding.

The purpose of the project is to encourage young people to be engaged citizens and contribute to the State of Israel in which it will be able to represent the international community and then be integrated into the country’s future leadership.

Applauding them proudly were Mayor of Kiryat Gat, Aviram Dahari, Director of Education Mrs. Zahava Gur and Ambassador Yitzhak Eldan, who is overseeing the project on behalf of the Multidisciplinary Center for Educational Entrepreneurship.

Their first task at the program will be to meet with youth from European countries and enhance their eyes the image of the State of Israel.

This school year, when students are in the classroom, they will step in, and this time will focus on speeches in English.
