In eight years, Y2i has grown the Year 10 programs for Jewish Schools by 92%, and for non-Jewish schools by 373%. By supporting 2,160 participants since 2014, we have consolidated our next generations’ Jewish and Zionist identities, and connection to community.
This year we commissioned Rosov Consulting to undertake a longitudinal study of our 2015 and 2016 program participants, evaluating the impact Year 10 Israel programs have had on their current attitudes, knowledge and behaviours toward Jewish life and Israel. The key survey findings prove that Y2i supported Israel programs make a significant impact on the Jewish lives of our alumni, reinforcing the importance of Y2i’s mission.
Y2i is an exciting triumph for our community, and envied Australia wide. It will continue to grow for years to come.
