Free Spirit program in Israel, for empowering youth from around the world toward good mental health, self-actualization, and leadership!

“Free Spirit” is an experiential, educational- therapeutic program in Israel, geared toward teens ages 14-18 and young adults ages 18-23 from around the world who are experiencing various challenges and difficulties. Within their stay with us, we focus on Experiential and Outdoor Therapy with group as well as individual components, Kibbutz community life, and amazing expeditions.

Free Spirit is focused on “Challenge by Choice” experiences, developing personal self-regulation and self-reliance. We align ourselves with our participants own goals and in return we experience positive collaboration on our participants’ part, as they feel highly involved in their process. Learning to make good healthy choices on your own, rather than relying on external motivations and structure better assures us that lessons learned here can better translate to other, less structured environments. Participants continue their journey with the necessary tools and understandings to overcome their difficulties and succeed in life.

The therapeutic approach is based on individual treatment, new challenges and group dynamics.The participants will engage with Israeli culture and society, including the unique kibbutz community life with all of its benefits.

The students are accompanied by a team of experienced counselors, mentors, guides and other professionals. Our staff to participants ratio is high and can reach 1-on-1 through many experiences.
