"Light for Education is a community based on the belief in the power of education and initiation... To shape personality, establish self-confidence and instill in young children the courage to dream."

Be meaningful and feel a sense of belonging

In our unique program, high school students mentor sixth-graders, in preparation for the transition to middle school. We place emphasis on strengthening the self-image, sense of security, belonging and ability of the trainees and mentors as part of individual and group activities. Our various branches are led by scholarship students in the positions of branch heads and training coordinators.

Who is the program for?


Who study and / or live in the periphery. We locate the individuals of virtue with exceptional leadership and educational abilities and enable them to gain real managerial experience (by managing the regional branches) as well as awarding them a significant scholarship.

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.
