On the collaboration between Jezreel Valley College and the Clubhouse:
In 2009/10, contact began with the college through a project of members participating in college courses as free listeners.
The college accepted the opportunity and even gave a 50% discount on tuition and registration fees.
Members of the “Clubhouse Amit” community took part in the project:
“I felt really elated, every time I went to study. It was significant for me to be in the company of young people. ”
“I found an area that interested me, I discovered abilities in myself and I was able to see the processes that happened to me during my studies, which also affected other areas of life. Today I am more confident in myself and my choice and feel that I need to develop my abilities. ”
