Ingathering of The Exiles – Yemin Orde Youth Village
Yemin Orde Youth Village, located on 77 acres atop Mount Carmel in northern Israel, is home, school and safe haven to 440 at-risk and immigrant youth from around the world.
The Village remains open 24/7, 365 days a year, for youth who have no other place to call home in Israel. Yemin Orde provides a high ratio of staff to students and provides individualized therapeutic care and academic tutoring to those in need of extra supportive services.
Additionally, the Village’s “Informal Educators” provide mentoring to troubled youth and are available 24 hours a day. The traditions and values of Judaism are woven into every aspect of life at Yemin Orde.
Graduates remain connected to the Village long after graduation and often return for financial assistance, life cycle events and celebrations. This sense of safety and lifelong support for graduates is one of the unique elements that makes Yemin Orde Youth Village a model of excellence in Israel.
