Young UIA - United Israel Appeal

Young UIA

YoungUIA logoYoungUIA is about connecting our generation to Israel and evoking a sense of belonging for our supporters. Our vital work ensures the continuity of Jewish support to Israel and all Jewish people in need - whether it's from a physical, social, economic or educational threat. Globally, we are involved in 4 major areas of action: aliyah and absorption; youth at risk, education and strengthening Israel’s social infrastructure.

By supporting these causes, a double mission is fulfilled - to stand by Israel and the Jewish people around the world, and ensure the continuity and future leadership of Keren Hayesod - UIA.

YoungUIA targets people in our Community aged 18-40, and is an important link within the chain of Jewish nation-building. Events and activities are targeted to specific cohorts within the YoungUIA demographic - particularly 18-25/30 and 25/30-40.

Net@  - turning risk into opportunity

YoungUIA has recently shifted its fundraising efforts to the Net@ Project.

The Net@ program is geared to increase the social, economic, and educational opportunities of disadvantaged youth from Israel's geographical and social peripheries through technology education.

As hi-tech becomes increasingly central to Israel's economic success, computer literacy and IT training is critical to ensure social mobility for young Israelis from disadvantaged backgrounds. Israel's periphery has a lower socio-economic status and is characterised by higher rates of unemployment and high school incompletion compared to urban centres.

Net@ is an after-school program which instils leadership, personal empowerment and social responsibility values in youth through advanced professional technological skills training over a four-year, modular curriculum. Net@ trains over 1,000 young Israelis from all demographics in 15 communities each year.

Net@ participants graduate with advanced technological, professional and leadership skills, making them top candidates for jobs in science and technology-related fields.

An integral part of the Net@ program is FIXIT, which enables participants to gain experience in computer repair and refurbishing, and running a small business. Through FIXIT, they use their new skills to give back to their communities and promote environmental conservation through e-waste recycling programs.

The program was established in conjunction with The Jewish Agency, Cisco and Appleseeds Academy.
