Summary

Explore the unique social and educational laboratory known as the Israeli kibbutz!

This valuable book examines state-of-the-art innovations in services for children and youth happening today in the kibbutz in Israel. It brings to light the latest developments in integrated services for clients inside and outside the kibbutz society, services for detached and troubled individuals and groups from outside the kibbutz, and regional services that include kibbutz and non-kibbutz children who live at home while attending kibbutz institutions.

According to editor Yuval Dror, ”Since the mid-1980s, the kibbutz movement has experienced a deep social and economic crisis, but despite this negative influence on the semi-private kibbutz educational system, the uniqueness of ’communal/cooperative education’ has been maintained, and has even grown. The openness of the kibbutz to its neighbors from non-kibbutz settlements in the 1980s and 1990s enabled rural areas to succeed in fruitful cooperation with the kibbutz. These experiences are detailed here.”

In Innovative Approaches In Working with Children and Youth: New Lessons from the Kibbutz you’ll learn about youth aliya groups (youth societies), the Project for the Education of Israeli Children in the Kibbutz Movement, the NA’ALEH Program, and the Zweig Center for Special Education at Oranim. This unique book brings you:
  • a comparison of two kibbutz secondary boarding schools with residential facilities in different forms
  • a look at a unique way of absorbing young Russian immigrants in kibbutzim and other residential settings
  • an examination of integration practice in kibbutz day schools
  • a discussion of how Kfar Tikva serves disabled adults
  • . . . and much more!
Educators and their students, youth workers, and social workers, as well as anyone with an interest in the unique learning opportunities offered by the kibbutz system will find Innovative Approaches In Working with Children and Youth: New Lessons from the Kibbutz an invaluable tool.
