Annually, 1,200 Eitan soldiers graduate from the army. In order to prevent the return to a disadvantaged environment, we aim to touch the lives of as many soldiers as we can. A sample study of interviewed Havat Hashomer soldiers upon their release found: 

  • 92% expressed interest in participating in our mentorship program 
  • 71% had not completed high school matriculation exams (GED equivalent)
  • 25% had less than 10 years of schooling
  • 40% had a previous criminal record
  • 2% had received higher education
