Children and Youth

Over the past two decades, Israel has made great efforts to improve 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 Children’s Team has influenced the national agenda through studies of the needs of children and youth at risk, and the service system designed to address them.

In 2021, the Children's Team will continue to assist policymakers and service developers in addressing the increased risk situations for children resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic by undertaking international reviews describing what is being done in other countries, providing consultation to government ministries, participating in round table discussions and providing ad-hoc rapid response services such as surveys and focus groups.
