Rothschild Ambassadors Program Launched

from The Jerusalem Post:

The Rothschild Ambassadors program will train 100 young people to be the country’s leaders of the future.

Looking for leadership

… The banquet marked the launching of the pilot class of the Rothschild Caesarea Foundation’s Rothschild Ambassadors program. According to the program’s mission statement, it is looking for “young people interested in becoming the future business and social leaders of Israel.”

In the pilot year, the program will train 100 student “ambassadors” in “leadership and social responsibility” and grant a NIS 20,000 scholarship to each participant. The program will also offer training and workshops with business and political leaders to help provide participants with the tools to become leaders.

The program and the rest of the charities run by the Rothschild Foundation will be overseen by Baroness Ariane de Rothschild, and organizers said they hope that in coming years it will grow and the number of participants will far surpass the 100 who will take part in the pilot program.
