Yemin Orde YOuth Village

The Yemin Orde Youth Village provides a home away from home to over 400 at-risk teenagers (13-19). Most are immigrants, primarily from the FSU, Ethiopia, Brazil and France. Our aim is to provide all the educational and emotional nurturing a child needs in order to become a successful adult.

Location: Hof Hacarmel Israel
Year founded: 1953


Friends of Yemin Orde is the U.S. fundraising arm for Yemin Orde Youth Village and Yemin ORde Educational Initiatives in Israel. We seek philanthropic partners who have a passion for helping at risk teens in Israel reach their full potential so they can become productive members of society and future leaders for Israel.

Yemin Orde operates on a 24/7 basis with extra-curricular programs and services that most families would want for their own children. Yemin Orde remains connected to its graduates for life.

We seek grants for general operating support and specific areas of program support such as the graduate program, learning center, recreational activities, women's empowerment. We also have a program that brings the unique Village Way methodology developed at Yemin Orde  to additional educational communitites throughout Israel that serve vulnerable children who through no fault of their own, have extreme learning challenges and are emotionally fragile.
