Israel Programs - Mechina Kol Ami

Mechina Kol Ami

Kol Ami is a post-high school preparatory program (Mechina) with a unique syllabus focusing on issues of peoplehood, Israel engagement, and the bonds between Israelis and the Jewish people abroad and volunteering in the local community. The program pairs post high-school Israeli teens with Jewish teens from around the world. The current group of participants includes Israelis as well as young people from Australia and New Zealand.


Kol Ami strives to build and promote young, idealist and ambitious leadership which focuses on social responsibility and to position Israel as empowering and, in turn, being empowered by the Jewish communities around the world.
