Maavarim (Transitions): Rural Employment Center in the Bedouin Sector in the Negev - Khura and Segev Shalom Evaluation Report

By Judith King, Rachel Raanan

Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, 2011

The Maavarim Center in the Bedouin sector in the Negev is based on the model of the Maavarim rural employment centers in the Jewish sector. It provides a successful model for adjusting employment programs to accommodate the values and norms of Bedouin society. This was done with the full cooperation of the community leadership and the formal and informal institutions of traditional Bedouin society, for maximal integration of Bedouin men and women into employment as wage earners or business entrepreneurs. Maavarim is connected to the regional economic development plan, which adds an economic horizon to its activities. The Center offers each participant a tailor-made service package, including: information about employment opportunities and vocational training; acquisition of job-seeking skills; employment counseling; and the provision of courses to complete schooling and vocational courses.
