“Extensive research, conducted both in Australia and internationally, has confirmed that youth participation in organised trips to Israel, is a key driver of continuity. What surprised me about the research is that the trips have a greater impact firstly, where the participants are in year 10 rather than after the completion of high school and secondly, where the vast majority of their cohort attend.
As a consequence, the Y2i is a critical element in ensuring our community not only survives but importantly thrives in the decades to come.”
