Young Adult Center

Young Adult Center

Ariel’s Young Adult Center opened in 2016. The Center, dedicated in honor of Mayor Eli Shaviro’s late wife, Orya Shaviro, provides Ariel’s young adults ages 18-35 with a hub for personal and professional development.

The YAC’s services span a number of different fields:

  • Parenting, including a club for new mothers and a variety of parenting workshops;
  • Courses for young professionals, run in partnership with our own Field Center for Entrepreneurship (FCE)
  • Employment fairs to match new graduates and current students with local businesses;
  • Support for recent IDF veterans, including special workshops tailored for newly-released soldiers and professional and academic guidance;
  • Resources and space – including co-working spaces, conference rooms, a music room, and more.

The YAC serves not only to provide support on the immediate level for young adults; it also builds community. The Center serves to help keep Ariel’s up-and-coming families and professionals firmly rooted in Ariel – and turns the city into an ideal destination for young families.
