New Beginnings

By Denise

2021 is finally here. Though we will never forget all we lost in 2020, a new year renews our spirit and our hope for brighter days. 

Photo Start is beginning the year with a new partnership in a new country.  We are excited and honored to introduce you to DrorIsrael. 

DrorIsrael’s mission is to educate for a just and equal Israel. We share their dream of a brighter future for youth on the social, geographic, and economic periphery.

“Our Vision for Israel is a society of democracy, equality, and peace created through education and community, where all share responsibility, benefit from opportunity, and realize their own potential…”

DrorIsrael is a network of 1,300 trained educators living in the neighborhoods they serve, bridging gaps and solving local problems. Through schools for youth at risk, Jewish-Arab programs, the youth movement, educational workshops, intentional community projects, and national social justice initiatives, they lighten the lives of 150,000 young people every year. Like Photo Start, they inspire inclusivity, equality, and responsibility for oneself and one’s community.

Photo Start programs will begin soon at a school in the heart of Tel Aviv. Follow us on our social channels to see our first Israeli class in action. We can’t wait to meet them!
