05/30/2018 - Staff In-Service Training: Visit to Supreme Court

As part of Negba’s commitment to ongoing professional enrichment, its programming staff members took part in a recent full-day of in-service training. Held in Jerusalem at Israel’s Supreme Court, the day aimed to provide Negba’s staff with an insider’s look at the workings of Israel’s legal system to equip them with knowledge about the rights of children and youth. The staff dialogued with a juvenile judge, and then met with an attorney, hearing first-hand about some of the challenges that Israel’s underprivileged youth might confront.

“It was very enlightening for us to learn about the entire legal process and the options available to a youth and his family,” said Eyal Peretz, Negba’s Program and Human Resources Director. There are many dilemmas that a youth might have to deal with, and we as a staff must be aware of them, and prepared to assist them as best as we can.”

Much of that assistance, not surprisingly, is not legal but emotional. “The strong message that came through from the entire in-service day was that our staff support for a child engaged with the law is critical,” remarked Eyal. “It is a very long road when someone is involved in a legal proceeding. Negba’s staff has to be there for the child, and must never allow the youth to give up hope.”
