Israel’s premier outdoor training site, the National Leadership Center in Ariel (NLC), provides a one-of-a-kind, experiential platform which trains the next generation of Israeli and international leaders.
Participants are given the opportunity to learn about themselves through training programs based on Biblical values and historical narratives – preparing Israeli leaders for the future through a bond with the past.
Educators and course leaders deliver training that encourages guests to think creatively, communicate effectively, engage in self-reflection, foster teamwork, develop discipline, and recognize their strengths and those of their peers.
With the beautiful landscape of Ariel and the surrounding hills as the backdrop, our guests also deepen their connection to the land of Israel and to the Jewish state. Students, educators, corporate staff, high-tech personnel, and tourists regularly make the ANCLD their choice for an activity that empowers individuals while uniting the group. The Center is based on a partnership with friends from the United States at JH Ranch and with local and national agencies in Israel.
The Center consists of six courses:
In addition to the obstacle courses, the Center features outdoor and indoor areas for group briefings and the “Big Top” tent for events. In order to enhance the value of the site can provide trainees and participants, further facilities are needed. Plans include the construction of cabins and tent sites to allow participants to enjoy a multi-day experience.
