Shiur Acher (meaning: different lesson) focuses on expanding opportunities for disadvantaged children by connecting between schools in low-income neighborhoods and volunteer resources, offering high quality education.
Founded in 2002, Shiur Acher aims to change the way children perceive themselves utilizing a low cost/high impact approach. Shiur Acher recruits volunteers – accomplished professionals – through their place of employment as teachers in Israeli schools teaching “different lessons” in their own field of expertise.
Shiur Acher serves thousands of children from a variety of backgrounds. These children are inspired to develop new ways of thinking and set higher goals for themselves through role models, new teaching methods and exciting subject matter.
