A growing community of tomorrow's game changers!
IAC Eitanim brings together the next generation’s Jewish-American and Israeli-American middle and high school students for an immersive, innovative, project-based learning experience which strengthens participants’ Jewish identity, builds their connection to Israel and ignites their “Israeliness”.
With the help of mentors from the community, IAC Eitanim empowers the teenagers to be active in their community, engaging with the Israeli and Jewish American central challenges while promoting a mindset of entrepreneurship, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving and other soft skills.
