Five years ago we established "My Wave", believing that anyone can get on the wave and succeed in life.
Omer and Yaron joined up with academic studies and became best friends.
Between the waves and the studies, they had the idea of combining their two loves – working with youth at risk and surfing.
From the dream to reality: From 10 boys who volunteered for a year – to fall in love, give themselves up, leave their jobs, take loans and buy surfboards and insurance – and to date, the association works with 60 groups and over 550 youth at risk in four active centers in Bat Yam , Tel Aviv, Mevo'ot Yam and Kfar Galim.
To be a significant youth organization that touches thousands of girls and boys with marine centers along the coast of Israel
We, educators and the sea, strive to assist youth at risk, to expose the inner forces inherent in them, in order to cope with the challenges of life.
We believe that through a formative experience with the seafarers of the sea and the waves, in a unique and structured process, the youth will have a significant success experience, which will serve as a springboard for them to succeed in life.
We work with the belief that creating a beneficial affiliation group, while using the healing power of the sea, will give the youth a real opportunity to get on the wave, on the road to a better life.
Like in the sea – that's life!
