Ariel’s mayor, Eli Shaviro, and representatives from the Ministry of Education and Social Welfare offices of Ariel attended the ceremony and thanked the students for their community service.
As part of the program, each scholarship recipient completed 20 of hours of community service tutoring and mentoring Ariel’s teenagers to help them succeed in school and in life.
Tutoring programs from Ariel’s best and brightest students has boosted the city’s quality of education, and matriculation success, each and every year. These programs allow the college-age residents of Ariel, who are raised in the city’s school system, to give back to the next generation of college-bound teens where and when it is needed most.
Each student related their personal experience during their tutoring work, as they encouraged teens to follow through with their schoolwork and studies and succeed in passing Israel’s difficult matriculation exams. Their experiences left an indelible mark for progress on the lives of both the tutors and their students.
