Israel has used hi-tech to catapult itself into the global economy, creating an innovative & entrepreneurial reputation. However many youth aren’t exposed to opportunities that allow them to develop new skills & reach success.
Net@ uses a holistic approach to empower youth from Israel’s geographic & socio-economic peripheries with advanced technology education, social values, and leadership skills. The technology curriculum is based on Cisco’s Networking Academy; the social leadership curriculum teaches multiculturalism, democracy & community commitment.
