The Benjamin de Rothschild Ambassadors Program

The Benjamin de Rothschild (BR) Ambassadors Program was established as an Edmond de Rothschild Foundation (IL) flagship program, seeking to train the next generation of socially committed leadership in Israeli society. The program strives to identify, train, and establish a pool of young leaders, primarily from the socio-geographic periphery, who will successfully integrate into positions of influence in Israeli society. These young individuals will work to promote equal opportunity and structure a shared society through the platform of cooperation and joint initiative. The uniqueness of the program, which was established in 2010, lies in the combination of developing social awareness and community action, and a process of personal, academic, and occupational development in parallel to academic studies. The program expands lateral partnerships within the framework of social practicum and the creation of projects with a community impact.
