For over a decade, Olim Beyahad has directed its programmes and partnerships to systematically improve the employment opportunities of outstanding Ethiopian Israeli university graduates and students, and to position them as leaders in Israeli Society. We equip our participants with practical, personal, and professional tools, and match them with personal mentors from among senior workforce figures.
We also provide exceptional Ethiopian youth with long-term personalized guidance and fellowships that advance them in their field of study. Our graduates are offered personal and professional advancement programmes, social engagement opportunities, and involvement in our strategic leadership. Whilst our participants realize their professional aspirations, we create permanent change in public perceptions – on the road to equal opportunities for all Israelis.
