Israeli Association of Community Centers - EST. 1969

 

The Israel Association of Community Centers (IACC) is the leading social organization in Israel, with a mission to build strong and sustainable local communities that contribute to a robust and progressive society. The IACC operates a national network of over 1,000 community centers from Metula to Eilat, and serves over 1.5 million residents weekly, in approximately 151 local municipalities with an emphasis on the social and geographical periphery, touching all sectors and populations of Israeli society.

The IACC created a new language and image for community centers. While they once were only a place where youngsters occasionally came to play sports, today the community center is a focal point for communal, social, recreational, and cultural activities based on a vision that encompasses residents, the local government, and the business community all working together to meet community needs.

Additionally, the IACC serves and creates tailor-made programming for the entire Israeli population; regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, including multiple inclusive programming for both the mentally and physically differently-abled populations.

" Fabulous February" 

" Fabulous February"

Over 250,000 citizens participate in the " Fabulous February" activities, which are all intended to promote interaction between the disabled population and the general public. Such encounters create an ambience of mutuality, which serves as a base for familiarity, understanding, integration, cooperation and accessibility. The diverse interactions constitute a process of discourse, which ultimately can eliminate negative sentiments and false conceptions and lead to full inclusion.
Among the initiatives that will be introduced during February 2023 are:
• Some 1,500 major events will take place around the country, which will include theater, movies, exhibitions, and other performances, all focused on empowering persons with disabilities in their community and enhancing awareness to their special needs and difficulties.
• Diverse activities will be conducted within IACC's ongoing programs, i.e. Sal Tarbut- Israeli National School Cultural Program, Keren Karev Program for Educational Involvement, day-care centers and others.
• Lectures and workshops on attitude-changing will be delivered by persons with disabilities.
• Tens of role-switching events will take place, with the participation of senior officials of local authorities and CEOs of government offices.
• A PR and press campaign will be launched to cover the project, including a special full-day broadcast program.
