The Unit’s Vision
The goal of the Community Involvement Unit is to promote social involvement and responsibility on the part of the university community
based on a philosophy that views social involvement and responsibility as the third function of the academic world.
“Participating in the Raveh-Ravid Fund for Excellence and Social Leadership made me believe in my own capabilities. Through working there, I faced new challenges and learned what I can do.”
The Jewish-Arab Community Leadership Program helped me understand how to spearhead change and exposed me to multicultural cooperation.”
At Gan Ha’yeled, I gained professional educational experience. It felt as fi I was on a meaningful mission. For me, Gan Ha’yeled is the place I go once a week to meet amazing, challenging children and an effective, family-like team.”
“The SHAGI Project helped me understand ultra-Orthodox society, go past the stigmas, and connect with the people. As a program graduate and MA student in Clinical Psychology, I feel the project enabled me to undergo a profound human process.”
“As a graduate of the Gan Ha’yeled Program, I can tell you that I underwent a truly significant process of personal and professional development. Meeting the different groups of children from special education schools and the counselors at Gan Ha’yeled made me, for the first time, feel real satisfaction from connecting with the kids. There is no doubt in my mind that my participation in the project was enriching and formative and will have an impact no matter what I do in the future.”
