The Engelberg Center for Children and Youth

Over the past two decades, Israel has made a dramatic effort to transform the service system for children and youth at risk, with emphases on community-based services, systematic data-based planning, and inter-ministerial and inter-agency collaboration.  Throughout this period, MJB’s Engelberg Center for Children and Youth has influenced the national agenda through studies of the needs of children and youth at risk, and the service system designed to address them.
