Appleseeds Academy was established in 2000 in order to serve as a bridge between the Startup Nation and Israel's geographic and social periphery. We work to close the digital divide through the development and implementation of basic and advanced technology programs, vocational trainings, and life skills development.
Working with a team of 250 professional instructors, Appleseeds operates in dozens of locations throughout Israel, from Kiryat Shmona to Eilat. We reach 100,000 beneficiaries per year, mostly residents of the social and geographic periphery of Israel who lack the infrastructure and skills required for integrating fully into Israel’s economic future.
Specific target audiences include: children and youth, youth at risk, women seeking employment; members of the Israeli minority sectors such as Arab society, Bedouin, the Druze community, the ultra-Orthodox, and new immigrants; as well as teachers, student teachers, and special needs populations.
