It was a busy week at our Nir Am Neighborhood Youth Center. The center had a talented magician perform a live magic show and the teens were amazed with his tricks. He also taught them how to perform some magic on their own!
In partnership with the Sderot Municipality, the center hosted a special young women’s evening with learning activities and important confidence building discussions. This is part of a new initiative to create a support group specifically tailored to young women.
Similarly, the Ben Gurion Center held fun activities for the young women’s group. They are continuing their coursework on building self-esteem and confidence. This course has impacted these ladies in such a positive way, and one participant shared “I can’t believe how much I am learning from a workshop on styling, not only about dressing but how I view myself and how I share myself with the world.”
The teens also participated in a woodworking workshop which was a group favorite from last year’s program. This year, the teens are working together and building a new seating area for themselves to use in the center.
