Every year, "For Tomorrow" conducts dozens of group trips of young Israelis who fought in the IDF, to a place far from the hustle and bustle of daily life, which allows them to touch the hidden wounds. The journey is a seven-day nature journey in the Kryptical Mountains in Romania, and will be accompanied by professionals from the fields of psychology, group facilitation and nature therapy.

At the Yehuda Youth Center, the staff was exposed to the frustrating fact about the long waiting list for the journey throughout the country, and chose, as someone responsible for the welfare of the young people of the council, not to stand still and allow women and discharged combatants, residents of the council, to embark on a journey especially for them.

Livnat Cohen, Director of the Youth Center: "Pride, excitement and a tremendous sense of mission of the Youth Center in the Council and of the entire Council that initiated, raised the gauntlet, provided the funding and supported the initiative. You gave your beautiful years for our security and the security of the homeland, now it is our turn to give you back, for tomorrow for all of us, good luck."

Tomer Freibach, CEO of the association: "The formation of the Journey for Tomorrow group by the Mateh Yehuda Regional Council is a breakthrough for the formation of a heterogeneous group for travel. The ability of the Youth Center to locate participants, build a group and help finance the activity greatly simplifies the process of preparing for the journey, and the fact that the participants come from one area will help the group continue as a supportive group for many years after the journey itself."
They were there for us, it is our duty to be there for them!
