For the past 15 years, the Wings Program has been providing immigrant youth and lone soldiers with the tools they need to enter Israeli society as confident and active citizens. More than 3,000 of these new immigrants serve in the IDF each year. These young people have made significant sacrifices by leaving their homes and families to move to Israel and protect the Jewish Homeland. In partnership with the Jewish Agency, Wings offers a continuum of services, from the time they first arrive in Israel and years after their release from the IDF. Wings ensures that these courageous, young individuals do not “fall through the cracks” of Israeli society due to a lack of resources and a supportive safety net and helps them achieve their personal goals and aspirations.
