The Projects

Our academic training programs are aimed at people in the field of social education and are based on a democratic culture.
Workshops and training seminars are conducted in the spirit of the Institute’s vision for organizations undergoing short-term processes: to lead, map, and expose organizational change within various educational, social, and communal frameworks.

The academic tracks and the training processes are characterized by innovation, activism, and professionalism
The academic tracks attract a unique population of young people who want to influence Israeli society through civil and educational action. Half of the participants are men – a very unusual statistic in Israeli teaching training institutions
Our training processes have been selected as experimental programs by the Ministry of Education and are currently recognized as one of their specialized programs

In Practice

Various academic tracks are being implemented at Tel Aviv University, Kibbutzim College of Education in Tel Aviv, Kaye Academic College of Education in Beersheba and Oranim Academic College of Education at Kiryat Tivo’n.
We have partnerships with additional academic bodies in Israel, such as The David Yellin Academic College of Education, and abroad, such as Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership in Chicago.

The Incubator

The Incubator for Educational Initiatives program trains participants to lead social change processes in the spirit of the democratic culture.
The program is taught as part of a joint bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate between the Democratic Institute and the Kibbutzim College of Education.

Having been developed as a trial program in conjunction with the Ministry of Education, it has operated successfully for the past 13 years.
The program attracts a unique group of students (average age of 27) with prior educational experience, half of whom are men.
The incubator’s unique training process enables the students to be active social and educational entrepreneurs while still within the framework of their training.

Paths is a training track for educators in social and environmental education which takes place in Kaye Academic College of Education.
It uses experiential and experimental learning tools with study frequently taking place outside of the classroom.
In this track veteran educators, using this opportunity to complete their degree studies, Paths Trail trains teachers to be innovative educators.
The program sees the global environmental crisis not as a crisis of nature but of society; its source is not the relationship between people and nature but between people themselves.
There is, therefore, a need to find solutions to the crisis from an educational perspective.
