Gandyr Foundation together with many authorities in the filed, including Young Adults Organizations, Academia etc. and with the guidance of Dr. Liat Basis, has developed an Indicator for Young Adults Civil Participation.
The Indicator defines 9 forms of participation with 3 influential cycles in each form.
In May 2017 Dr. Jeffrey Arnet, one of the leading academic scholars in the field of emerging adulthood, gave a lecture in the Academic College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo.
The presentation was inspiring and we are happy to share it.
Dr. Jenny Oser from Ben Gurion University has conducted a research on “Democratic Ideals and Political Behavior: Young Israelis in Comparative Perspective”
This paper focuses on higher education in Israel. Higher education in Israel has experienced significant expansion and diversification during the last two decades. Using descriptive analysis and generalized ordered logistic regression models, this study, made by Yariv Feniger from Ben-Gurion University and Hanna Ayalon and Oded Mcdossi from Tel Aviv University, analyzes vertical and horizontal ethno-religious inequality.
The period of life between the ages of 18-35 is sensitive and very important phase with decisions in key areas of one’s life. Yet there is little knowledge and theoretical studies on this age. Gandyr Foundation sponsored a study led by Professor Gali Cinamon – characteristics of the investigation stage of young adulthood – the case of young people in Israel.
Patterns of Exploration in Young Adulthood
Choosing a field of study and career are among the important choises young adults face. An informed choice on this issue contributes to successful integration into society and employment. The purpose of the study carried out with the support of Gandyr Foundation and led by Prof. Itamar Gati from the Hebrew University was to map the needs of young adults with regard to choosing a field of study and profession and find variables that affect the willingness of young people to turn to assistance in this area.
A study done by Prof. Liat Kulik and Dr. Benny Benjamin from the School of Social Work, Bar Ilan University, with funding from Gandyr foundation. The research focused on developing a tool for diagnosing and predicting occupational adaptation among young adults up to 30.
