Derech Hamelech was first implemented in 2006 at the initiative of ELEM and the Juvenile Probation Service, with the goal of helping youth at risk to acquire tools and skills to prepare them for work life, while establishing a relationship of trust and support with a mentor. The program is based on a corps of volunteers who serve as personal mentors and support the adolescents at their workplace. The evaluation was conducted in 2009-2010 in the 10 localities where the program was implemented. The aim of the evaluation was to provide the implementers with a basis on which to improve and expand the program. The study examined implementation of the program, the participants' characteristics and the benefits perceived by the mentors for the youth and for the mentors themselves.
