Kol HaNearim aims to provide care for some of the most vulnerable members of society: orphans and children at-risk.
Through our incredible year-long programming, we strive to provide at-risk youth with the tools and support they need to break their own cycles of distress and enable them to build happy, healthy, and successful lives.
In 2008, Michael Reidler, Founder and Chairman of Kol HaNearim, had his first experience volunteering with at-risk youth in Israel. From that summer on, he developed a feeling of responsibility towards every child in need. Two years later, Michael helped to develop, grow, and expand the program with which he had initially volunteered.
Today, with the help of a team of hardworking college students, Kol HaNearim has created eight summer programs in seven foster homes across Israel and one in Ukraine. We have also established a volunteer network to aid at risk community members locally across New York City during the school-year.
Our dream is for every orphan and child at risk to be cared for by his or her brothers and sisters from around the world. Providing the children with positive influences who believe in them will hopefully help them believe in themselves and lead them to establish their own happy families and successful lives.
WHAT WE DO
Kol HaNearim organizes summer camps and specially catered yearlong programming for over 2,000 at-risk youth at its partner children's homes.
Throughout the year, KH organizes weekend retreats both in Israel and America, marathons, and social events. We also work to provide volunteering opportunities, including our college volunteering program .
