To prevent violence in schools and transform Israeli classrooms into safe and nurturing environments that support students' academic and social growth.
Mission & Vision
Matzmichim is a non-profit organization that strives to create a change in school environments. Children are confronted with different forms of aggressive behavior from an early age. To prevent further cycles of conflict, we offer an innovative curriculum, in which these matters can be discussed openly between students, educational professionals, and parents. Our multi-day workshops contain various methods that offer alternatives to dealing with conflict through a positive approach. Additionally, we plan to influence public policy through teaching how to cope with violence and bullying in the school system.
Our work aims to...
Train teachers to improve intimate dialogues within the classroom between students and educators.
Reduce aggression and alienation between children.
Develop innovative strategies and practices in the field of teacher training and violence reduction.
