Youth Renewal Fund Timeline

This year marks YRF's 30 year anniversary.

The past 30 years have seen a lot of changes but one thing has remained constant. Everything we have done, are doing and will continue to do is about supporting the next generation of Israel by way of incredible education. We have supported thousands of students and since our partnership with Darca in 2014, are currently supporting 32 schools and learning centers across the most under-served areas of Israel. Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to the continued impact we can make over the next 30 years.
