MAKOM’s Pardes Community Visits School in Akko

This week we visited the “Second Immigration” school in Akko where grades 7-9 ran activities for the students on the topic of “Teen Culture”.  Through the program they spoke about relevant topics related to social groups such as why we drink alcohol and what it does to the group environment, how to recognize dangerous situations when we’re just having a good time. With the 9th graders we spoke about the topic of sexuality and relationships in order to to create a comfortable format for discussion to make the topic less taboo.
