Jennifer and Georgia Troski have requested that donations be made to Atidim Cadets for Municipality Leadership program, in lieu of gifts for their Bat Mitzvah. The twins would like to contribute in some way to Israel’s progress by helping students in disadvantaged circumstances make a worthwhile contribution to Israel through improved education and leadership programs.
Atidim strives to bridge the socioeconomic gaps between Israel’s periphery and its centre by creating equal educational opportunities. The program’s major goal is to prepare outstanding, socially-motivated young people from the periphery with exceptional leadership skills to enter key positions in Israel’s municipal civil service sector.
Atidim believes that choosing, training and preparing young intelligent people, who are sensitive to and understand Israel’s social problems, will bring a new cadre of professionals into local government and help change it from within. It will bring renewed energy and a higher quality of services that strengthen the social fabric of Israeli society.
