Adult and Youth Volunteers

ELEM maintains that the treatment of youth in distress and at risk is the responsibility of Israeli society as a whole. Therefore, along with close cooperation with the social welfare and educational systems and the municipal authorities, ELEM works hard to engage the community as a true partner in its social action activities.

The Volunteering Field is engaged in the development and the recruitment of resources and human capital within local communities for youth at risk. The goal is to recruit volunteers from the community for ELEM’s work, and to develop innovative responses and services for them in the community.

ELEM was established 30 years ago as a volunteer organization. In addition to employing paid professionals, ELEM now has 1700 active volunteers, of whom 300 are youth volunteering to help other youth.
