College for All will guide interns in the special educational methods they use in helping the youths of their organization.

College for All was established so as to provide equal educational opportunities for all children, while narrowing social gaps within Israeli society. The founders of College for All realized that motivated and talented children from economically distressed neighborhoods rarely receive appropriate support and encouragement and often fail to complete their education. A large percentage of pupils from impoverished neighborhoods identified as high achievers in elementary school have to deal with economic adversity, family hardships and social difficulties and do not receive appropriate support and encouragement. Many end up without a high school diploma and do not continue towards a higher education.
