Social Entrepreneurship Experience:

The Social Entrepreneurship Experience program in the Galilee is a highly subsidized opportunity geared mainly towards budding Social Entrepreneurs in the Jewish world between the ages of 21 to 28. The successful participant is one who has been involved in entrepreneurial ventures in the past and can demonstrate a capability to work independently and with resourcefulness in the pursuit of their passions. The participants will be provided a laboratory in friendly and welcoming communities in the Galilee to pursue their social ventures and will be given coaching, mentoring and training in the process from Israelis who specialize in social entrepreneurship. The participants will travel Israel, receive Ulpan training, be connected with warm and friendly host families, meet Israeli peers, and receive education regarding issues and current events affecting the Jewish community in the United States and Israel.  A key component to the program is the 8 part Social Entrepreneur Empowerment (SEE) program where participants will gain insight, training and inspiration from successful Israeli Social Entrepreneurs impacting life in the Galilee. This one of a kind opportunity will enhance the resumes of its participants in a unique and meaningful way as well as provide invaluable experience to help for a successful career for its participants.
