Be significant
To feel a sense of belonging

The transition from sixth grade to middle school marks a very significant moment in the lives of many children and teens. It can be a time full of fun, excitement and lots of new experiences and friends, but also full of challenges and concerns for some of the children and even for their parents. In our unique tutoring program we carefully select high school students tutoring sixth graders, in preparation for the transition to middle school and adult life.

As part of individual and group activities, we place emphasis on strengthening the self-image, sense of ability, significance and belonging of the trainees and mentors. The activity takes place in our branches, which are located in the comprehensive schools, and are managed by scholarship students.

our vision

To create a diverse and value-based Israeli society, in which everyone has an equal opportunity for self-fulfillment. We believe that children and youth who feel belonging and meaningful will lead social change and contribute to strengthening the local community and the resilience of Israeli society.

Light for Education is a community based on the belief in the power of education and initiation. Not only provide knowledge and broaden horizons, but also shape personality, establish self-confidence and instill in young children the courage to dream.
Robbie Rivlin, President of the State, May 2020

The program works to develop and promote 10th, 11th and 12th grade students as mentors through pre-training and mentoring. On the other hand, it works to promote and strengthen the sense of belonging of sixth-graders by creating a meaningful social framework. Students are exposed to lectures, peak events, intensive activities and individual activities between mentor and trainee.

I learn a lot from my apprenticeship. You learn that in a few sessions you can feel real closeness. Learning to be a significant figure for others. After each of our encounters me and Shilat have a jar in which we write our dreams for years to come and also the experiences and lessons we learned from the encounter. It's really amazing!


Tair, mentor



I feel like I'm really going through a journey in the light of education. That we all go through a journey ... In this journey I discover a lot about myself - that I can be attentive to others, that I am able to be more open. I understand that I have the ability to make others happy and I want to use it all my life.
