Zorman, Rachel; Rachmel, Shlomit; Bashan, Zipi
Gifted Education International, v32 n2 p173-184 May 2016
The National Mentoring Program was created in 2009 by the Division for Gifted and Outstanding Students in the Ministry of Education and is implemented by the Szold Institute. The program aims to cultivate future leaders in Israel. Highly gifted 10th and 11th graders are matched with top rate professionals in students' areas of interest. They work for a year on a project of mutual interest. Forty-four per cent of students live in geographical or social periphery. The article details program rationale and phases, and presents results of qualitative program evaluation. Each of the 50 students who completed the first three cohorts of the program produced high quality university level work. Some students also received significant recognition by the professional community, publishing their work and presenting it in professional conferences.
