|Mission||Menifa is a nonprofit organization based in Israel whose mission is to prevent youth at risk around the country from dropping out of high school and to reintegrate detached youth into normative society.|
Dropping out of school is a universal phenomenon on the rise in Israel. Young people without the structure and constraints provided by an educational institution are at greater risk for drug use, drug dealing, vagrancy, prostitution, and other criminal activities and behaviors. The extent of this phenomenon in Israel is frightening: there are approximately 150,000 teenagers at risk. There are 25,000 teens on the streets, susceptible to dangerous behaviors and people.
Menifa works in in all sectors of society in partnership with the Ministry of Education and other authorities around the country.
Since its founding, Menifa has operated over 130 centers around Israel for the prevention of dropout youth, reaching over 4,000 youth in distress. Over 90% of Menifa youth complete their matriculation exams and return to complete functioning.
