Career Rehabilitation For Wounded IDF Veterans
“Thank you for the workshop! It was an amazing experience, everything I encountered during the workshop has effected me greatly. I have never come across something like this where people shared with me how they overcame the traumas throughout their life to get where they are today. I am going to take with me the idea of finding something that I want to do, not what is dictated to me. In short, thank you Michelle, and Dror for the Wounded , and I hope I will be able to take everything and turn it into something practical for me.” – 2018 JumpStart Participant
JUMPSTART takes a group of 10 wounded IDF veterans through a series of motivational exercises, simulations, and events aimed at helping them identify a realistic career path which meshes with their talents, skills and aspirations.
The workshop is facilitated by experts and is designed to deliver the motivational JUMPSTART our veterans need for their rehabilitation.
JUMPSTART begins with the participants engaging in exercises to help them better understand their personality, leadership, and preferred work styles, resulting in a heightened sense of self-awareness.
Participants focus on organizational dynamics, differing corporate cultures, and the variety of work possibilities in the marketplace. This segment includes company visits to expose them to possibilities that could potentially suit their personalities and work style preferences.
JUMPSTART has participants sharing feedback with one another so that each may identify a career path that best matches their talents and aspirations. The workshop facilitators then select mentors in the industries or specific career domains that the participants have chosen. These mentors will actively support the participants and encourage their progress beyond the program.
Our wounded IDF veterans have much to contribute to society but are in need of sound occupational rehabilitation to get there. To aid with this critical transition, DROR FOR THE WOUNDED is committed to delivering programs such as JUMPSTART to ensure their rehabilitation is a success and their quality of life is improved.
