Where We Work: Israel
The 2015 launch of EquipYouth, a global employability and entrepreneurship initiative, in Israel represents one of IYF’s first forays into this country.
Through JDC-Israel, a sophisticated organization with close public sector ties, we reached unemployed and underemployed young people across the country with vocational training and apprenticeship. Over three years, participants benefited from an array of vocational courses, including industrial machine operation, childcare, and tourism disciplines. EquipYouth is a multi-country initiative of IYF with Caterpillar’s philanthropic organization, the Caterpillar Foundation.
