Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, December 2011

In 2006, JDC-Tevet (the Employment Initiative) established the Strive-Israel program in partnership with the Israeli government to help a poorly-educated, non-employed, young population to find work and develop an employment horizon. The program aims to create high motivation for work while providing participants with ongoing positive reinforcement and auxiliary services so that, at the end of the program, they will be able to integrate successfully into the labor market. It creates supportive mechanisms to remove barriers to employment, such as a participant characteristics and attitudes towards work, as well as environmental barriers. The Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute undertook an evaluation of Strive with two goals: to examine and improve the program's implementation and to assess the employment outcomes of program participants.
