The National Program for Children and Youth at Risk is one of the key social initiatives currently underway in Israel. Its goal is to change the way that Israeli society meets the needs of children and youth at risk and to enhance and strengthen the services for them. The program is being implemented in 70 localities, which are home to about half of the children at risk in Israel, and gives priority to Arab localities and localities with large concentrations of immigrants and ultra-Orthodox Jews. It is a collaboration of 6 government ministries and incorporates the principles of interministerial professional partnership, a standardized definition of children and youth at risk, commitment to new priorities, decentralization of decision-making to local authorities, systematic planning processes and the monitoring of outputs.
