New Youth Center Dedicated

Download PDF for this date

The Faye Schenk Youth Day Center of Youth Aliya was dedicated here last week. It is the first of its kind to be built in the capital, and the fourth in the country. The center will serve 170 youngsters, in the suburbs of Kiryat Menahem, who dropped out of normal schools or are on the verge of doing so. Over 50 percent of the people living in that suburb are of North African and Oriental origin and have the highest percentage of children in the city.

The center will be completed within a year to provide youth between the ages of 13-16 with 29 hours weekly of vocational training, 18 hours of general studies and four hours of social and sporting activities.
