A Place for Life Program
In the advanced program – A Place for Life – the graduates of The Lighthouse Program are granted the privilege of surfing at the “HaGal Sheli” center forever, free of charge. The center will become a pleasant, accepting and safe home that the graduates can return to for life. During weekly activities, participants work with experienced instructors to improve their professional surfing skills, while still receiving close mentoring and guidance.
The program operates throughout the year and includes boys and girls from different backgrounds and sectors of Israeli society. The participants are divided into groups according to age alone, rather than their educational frameworks, making each group consist of graduates from all walks of society.
On the surfboard, in the water, we are all equal; surfing the same waves with the same boards!
