Founded in 2006, reGeneration initially sponsored conflict resolution training for faculty and teens in Israel and a high school peace leadership program in the Galilee.

The high school program was a two-pronged educational model promoting Jewish and Arab shared participation in Israeli society while addressing the high drop out rate and low performance for matriculation of Israeli-Arab high school students from a public high school.

Though the high school program in itself was successful, we made two critical observations. One observation was that we saw that the educational gap between Jewish and Arab high school students was too large to try to effectively remediate at such a late stage of development.

From this observation, we decided it was far more productive to support equal education for both Jewish and Arab students from the earliest years. We also observed how important it was for the Jewish and Arab communities to share a common goal in which they could work together to achieve.
