Jusidman Campus for Bedouin Leadershipֹ-

The world's first Bedouin youth village

Israel's Youth Village Model

Israeli youth villages accelerate education by immersing students in a supportive environment. Students live alongside staff, classmates, and older students, who serve as mentors and role models. Youth villages educate holistically, blending formal and informal education to nurture students' natural talents, foster their intellect, and promote healthy cognitive, social, and emotional development.

At the Desert Stars Youth Village, the students will develop self-confidence and life skills through a quality education that prepares them for the 21st century workplace. They will achieve fluency in Hebrew, develop effective communication skills, make friends from other tribes, and explore their identity as Bedouin Israelis.

The Desert Stars Youth Village will allow us to achieve our mission for a strong and egalitarian Israeli society. At the youth village, we will be able to create a transformative educational experience and reach many more promising students, ensuring a large, active, and effective network of Bedouin leaders.

June 2023 Update

We are thrilled to share that we completed the infrastructure and earthworks for the campus in March 2023. In June 2023 we issued a tender for the construction of the school buildings and will shortly choose a contractor. We expect to begin construction in July 2023. After 12-13 intensive months of building, we expect to open our doors in September 2024 to nearly 700 students.
