Joy Bickler Arad Youth Centre
JNF UK is dedicated to promoting leadership in Israel’s youth by encouraging them to fill their time with positive experiences. To this end, JNF UK has built a youth centre in the heart of the city.
Named after the late Joy Bickler, who left a generous legacy to support the work of JNF UK, The Youth Centre serves 350 teenagers, aged 11 to 16, including those with special needs or currently classified as ‘at risk’, by providing a safe place for them to enjoy leisure time.
As well as providing an entertainment venue and giving young residents of Arad a convenient space to socialise, the new centre will feature a guidance and training area – providing a home for the city’s Youth Council and a venue for IDF Orientation classes.
This is just one of a number of projects that JNF UK is working on to improve the living conditions for the people of Arad.
Your support will enable us to continue this work and help other projects like it, making sure that the next generation has the best opportunities possible to excel in life.
