Hashomer Hatzair - Shnat Darom

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/habonim%20dror%20shnat%20amlat.jpg

Program Description

This program is conducted in Spanish.
 
Shnat, which means year in Hebrew, is a year of individual growth and exploration in which participants learn all sorts of life skills, things about themselves, and how to negotiate life with greater independence. Shnat is also about participating in a collective, the Shnat Kvutza, and about being part of a movement forum. This means that the process of independence, individual growth and discovery is connected to and supported by the other members of the group and the madrichim (guides) of the kvutza. 
 
The program gives participants tools to be able to do well in the world, fostering critical thought, learning about Israel, politics and Judaism, functioning in groups as well as taking care of oneself independently. Shnat provides the tools and a forum for exploring the next steps and potential paths for continuing to build one’s life consciously and within the framework of Hashomer Hatzair.

Ariel University ATZil

Program Description

Ariel University Center of Samaria is at the forefront of a dramatic change that is taking place in higher education in Israel. Located in the City of Ariel, a bustling community of 20,000 people in the Samarian hills, the University Center is helping to pioneer a new future for Israel and its younger generation. Established in 1982, the University Center has since grown and diversified to meet the new challenges of a burgeoning society with rapidly changing needs.
 
Ariel University Center of Samaria is the largest of its kind and one of the fastest-growing academic institutions in the country, with 8,500 students, representing the full spectrum of Israeli society: Jew & Arab, secular & observant, new immigrant & veteran Israeli. Students from across the country attend the University Center, with 70% coming from the greater Tel Aviv area and central Israel and the remainder from northern and southern Israel. As such, the school is a truly national institution and serves as a “melting pot” for all levels of Israel's society.
 
As a demonstratively Zionist institution, the University Center has two key requirements: every student must study one course per semester on some aspect of Judaism, Jewish heritage or Land of Israel studies, and the Israeli flag must be displayed in every classroom, laboratory and auditorium on campus.
