Leaders of Tomorrow Program
Israel & Morocco

So what is Leaders of Tomorrow?

Seizing opportunity afforded by the Abraham Accords, which normalized relations, the “Leaders of Tomorrow” initiative strengthens ties between young Israelis and Moroccans while promoting values of friendship and social innovation. We believe that connecting young people from different places, based on shared history and meaningful experiences, is the best way to create and maintain true, long-lasting relationships.

We are now launching the unique and historic Israel & Morocco program. The program will allow us, as Israelis, to connect with young people from Morocco and create real cultural-social initiatives together, in order to connect more and more young people in the region.

Here Are the Details

 

The program will last about 20 weeks, from December 2021 to the end of April 2022, and will include four parts:

1. Opening trip to Morocco: A week where we will study and delve into the rich Jewish heritage that exists in this country. We will get to know our fellow Moroccan participants and, together, we will begin the process of joint learning and project planning in pre-assigned focus teams. Moreover, the delegation will include a festive, formal concert with nine famous Moroccan musicians from Israel, Moroccan and the United States- three from each country. Their presence will help increase awareness to the initiative and include wider crowds as future potential participants and people-to-people ambassadors

2. Five-month online program: Throughout the duration, both plenary meetings (of all 40 participants) and team meetings will take place. The series of the plenary sessions will include senior lecturers and experts imparting knowledge about our shared culture and history, and reflect on society, community, and current challenges in the region. In addition, participants will receive interpersonal tools lending expertise in the world of people-to-people platforms. A series of focus team meetings guided by mentors will enable the creation, promotion, and execution of final projects to be launched in Israel by the end of April 2022, in accordance with the work plan to be presented during the opening trip to Morocco

3. Mid-Seminar – A unique seminar will emphasize the collaboration between the organizations, with fascinating new content and training that will provide additional enrichment

 

4. Final delegation week in Israel: Together with the members of the Moroccan delegation, we will hold meetings and get to know Israeli society and the country’s landscapes, along with peak events and the presentation of final projects, attended by Israeli and Moroccan government officials. The musicians who participated in the December opening delegation will take part in the final event
