For ten years Jewish Care’s innovative Young Achievers Program (YAP) has helped our youth to develop life skills, improve self-confidence and reach higher.

The program recently marked its 10th anniversary by launching an exciting YAP Alumni program at Sweet Crumble in Malvern. The YAP Alumni aims to reconnect past participants and make them more involved with the Jewish community and Jewish Care through regular networking events and interest-based functions.

“The YAP Alumni program is a really great way to stay in touch with other fellow former Young Achievers. While we all developed so much on the program, it is also important to continue along this way and give back to the Jewish community,” said YAP graduate, Marcus Frajman.

Keynote speaker Peter Alexander inspired 30 participants with his own life story and business success, which included school challenges, ambitious goals and commitment leading to enormous success.

“The launch of YAP Alumni demonstrates how far your passion and dedication can take you, with many of us on our way to fulfilling our dreams,” said YAP graduate, Ilana Charnelle. “And Peter Alexander’s presentation reminded us how much may be reaped from hard work and determination.”

“At Jewish Care we believe that learning never ends,” said Youth Engagement Manager Emma Boyar.” We are delighted to provide YAP graduates with new educational and networking opportunities, helping them to achieve their dreams beyond the program.”
