Yozma is a new program track of Nativ and is dedicated to furthering the development of life and leadership skills that are essential for young adults with cognitive and social challenges to lead independent, meaningful Jewish lives and successfully transition to a college program. Yozma is an inclusion program, integrated into every part of Nativ life alongside the other Nativ participants.
The Nativ program offered to Yozma participants includes a fall semester in which students choose either academic university classes for college credits, or Judaic and Yeshiva studies, intermixed with leadership training opportunities and trips. The second part of the year involves volunteer work, learning and teaching and community living in a Youth Village. A variety of programming options are available for evenings, Shabbat, and winter and Pesach breaks.
The cost of the Yozma track of Nativ for the 2019-2020 Nativ year is $41,000*.
