Regional Occupational Training Services - Kfar Yona

The Kfar Yona Regional Occupational Training Center began operating in May 2009. The center's initial goal is to create a continuum of occupational services affording each individual the opportunity to integrate into the occupational program that suits him or her. The following programs are currently available in Kfar Yonah:

  • Occupational Training Center
  • Supported Employment - occupational placement in the open job market, with ongoing supports

In the first year the main emphases are on: acquiring work habits, improving existing occupational skills and learning new skills. This will be accomplished through each individual's trying a wide range of tasks at varying levels of difficulty.


Young adults with special needs over 21 years of age and students in schools in the area who are ready for vocational training prior to joining the Occupational Training Center or being placed in a supported job.


Referrals may come from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Social Services's Department of Services for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities or Department of Rehabilitation, or from the Department of Rehabilitation of the municipalities of Kfar Yona, Emek Hefer, Lev HaSharon, Hof HaSharon, Kadima, Even Yehuda and Tel Mond. Candidates must also be approved by the center's Intake Committee.
