Learning how to make a difference
IsraAID U.S.’s educational resources focus on engaging students with broad principles of global humanitarianism, encouraging teens and young adults to think deeply about their obligations to the world.
IsraAID offers educational programs, both virtual and in-person (when safe), designed by Israel’s leading experts in humanitarian aid. Using digital media, discussion, and experiential activities, these programs highlight IsraAID’s vital global work to engage students with social justice, refugee crises, and natural disasters. Participants will broaden their understanding of current events, their own place in society, and their ability to effect change.
Fleeing Global Conflict: Designed to deepen understanding of the Global Refugee Crisis and foster empathy for displaced persons, this session focuses on IsraAID’s work with refugees worldwide, including from the Middle East, Venezuela, and Africa.

Addressing Global Crises – Emergency Response Simulation: Created to introduce basic concepts of post-disaster emergency response, deepen understanding of an affected community’s needs, and develop problem-solving skills, this program gives participants a taste of real-world crisis management experience, as well as the unique sector-specific expertise that IsraAID utilizes in the field.
