Graduates of Yemin Orde Youth Village remember the importance of volunteering and providing help to those in need. Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is a core element of the Village Way methodology, as well as an important tenet of Judaism.
The concept of "Paying it Forward" or re-paying a favor or good turn by doing the same to others is also important in the learning and growing process of the at-risk youth in the Village.
Yemin Orde graduates are involved in every aspect of daily life in Israel from politics, business, health care, military, the arts and technology to community activism and volunteer leadership. They are self-reliant adults, educated participants in the workforce, and have a deep sense of social responsibility.
The Graduate Mentor Program at Yemin Orde Youth Village provides graduates with networking and referral opportunities by matching them with older Village alumni. Older graduates often serve as mentors for the younger graduates and provide guidance through army service, higher education options and careers.
