CIE’s youth engagements provide participants with insight, knowledge and context about Israel’s history, politics and/or culture.  Rather than focus solely on advocacy training or teaching defensive tactics, CIE youth engagements provide participants with in-depth information, using contemporary data points and experiential methods. Our education team works with your youth group, camp or school to create a substantial learning experience unique for your organizational needs. Past youth workshops have been with audiences ranging from 18 to 250 participants and can be coordinated to take place onsite or virtually through the use of technology.
