We are proud and happy to share that Star for Life has launched a program for children and youth in East Jerusalem. On September 28, the founders of Star for Life, Dan and Christin Olofsson, together with Star for Life’s Secretary General Jessica Grundström Ahldin and other colleagues, visited the schools Al-Tur and Ibn Khaldoun.

These are two of four pilot schools where we are now testing a locally adapted version of the social and emotional learning program that has been developed by Motivationslyftet by Star for Life.

In addition to the educational program, Star for Life Jerusalem also launched an employment program for adults seeking meaningful work and a high tech training program to empower young adults within the IT sector.

All three programs are run by the local foundation Star for Life Jerusalem, and have been met by a strong enthusiasm from program participants, students, parents and teachers.
