Israel & Co. is a New York-based nonprofit whose mission is to build greater understanding of and appreciation for Israel among the global leaders of today and tomorrow by encouraging and empowering them to visit the country to experience for themselves Israel's global contributions, innovative culture, and complex reality.
Our programs are guided by a theory of change: We encourage and empower influential people to lead trips of their peers, students, and colleagues to Israel. We connect them to inspiring Israeli thought leaders, innovators, and policymakers, offering them quality content and a powerful experience. They return to their personal, professional, and civic lives with a new appreciation and caring for Israel, which they share with their networks.
We focus on segments that have strong track records for turning out future leaders and change-makers. Our current target is top graduate schools in the fields of business, law, and public policy. We work with student and faculty trip leaders who have expressed interest in leading a trip, and provide the support they need to design and implement a memorable, fun and meaningful Israel experience for their peers/students. To-date, we’ve worked with over 90 student-led and faculty-led delegations.
