Tachlis is a unique after-school vocational community center founded in 2017 in the heart of Gush Etzion for at-risk youth.
The center provides youngsters aged 15-20 suffering from various emotional problems and school truants with the opportunity to learn a trade. They gain skills they may one day use in a future career and simultaneously gain a sense of confidence when looking at the finished products they have created.
The vision behind the establishment of the center comes from the desire to provide a creative environment for young people who have not found themselves in other places and to provide them with the tools to learn various trades including carpentry, welding, ceramics, three-dimensional printing, three-dimensional imaging and other trades.
The three cornerstones of our program include:
Our spacious vocational workshop recently underwent a major renovation. It is a new modern facility which is able to meet the needs of the students in a comfortable and inviting environment.
The students attend Tachlis regularly and have been creating some amazing and unique finished products.
Your help is needed in order to allow us to expand the carpentry center within our workshop. We are in need of a wide array of equipment listed in the table below. With your help we can create a brighter future for at-risk youth in our communities!
