Since 2004, Menifa has provided personalized care to over 9,000 youths at risk – in every sector of Israeli society. Our professional team is comprised of teachers, social workers and psychologists that manage our positive youth development (PYD) programs across the country. Menifa provides youths with personalized educational plans, emotional guidance and a social support network.


Our conceptual model relates to the youths’ unique identity, family and social environment, as a whole.  Programing is tailored in a culturally aware and individualized fashion, in order to best cope with risk-associated behaviors and dropout trends. Our programs are conducted in partnership with the Ministry of Education, local municipalities and philanthropic partners. We are a registered non-profit organization.
