Yad Eliezer Yad Eliezer’s mentoring program provides over 4,000 severely troubled young boys and 300 girls with a “big brother” or “big sister” who was carefully chosen to provide his/her charge with the love and guidance that he or she lacks at home. The paid mentors are trained; they must fill out monthly and biannual assessment forms to insure that the children receive the best support possible. The proven success of the program enables it to receive up to 25% of its funding from local municipalities. In 2010, Yad Eliezer hired a survey team to determine the results of 10 years of mentoring. The resultant report, “A Decade of Success,” details in statistics what we knew to be true anecdotally. A full 96% of participants were placed in standard educational programs upon completion of our mentoring program, or had graduated and were holding down jobs.
