Diller Teen Fellows Global Congress 2023

While Diller Teen Fellows is a one-year leadership programme – filled with engaging workshops, meaningful shabbatonim and impactful tikkun olam activities – the highlight is the Global Congress experience.  Every year 700 Teens from 7 countries and 32 communities gather in Israel for a 4-day seminar of engagement, connecting, learning and personal growth.  

This year’s unique Global Congress took place at Ha’kfar Hayarok in Israel, showcasing international guest speakers, Diller alumni, Israeli tech innovators, inspiring outreach organisations, and a fair offering information about post-school opportunities.  

In the “Tikkun Olam Impact” initiative with Leket Israel – The Israeli National Food Bank, Israel’s leading food rescue organisation – Teens gathered produce in the fields, and packaged food for distribution to those in need around Israel, an initiative focused on reducing hunger and food wastage.  

The session titled, “Fellows’ Choice: Express Yourself”, allowed Teens to select their own session – run by an expert – based on their unique passions and interests. The activities include an immersive VR technology experience, drumming and music workshops, poetry and writing, Lego serious play, stop motion photography, Moroccan tile design, and mindful acting with well-known Israeli actor, Daniel Sabag. 

This unique experience brings both personal growth and the opportunity to engage with like-minded teens from across the globe.  Connections made that will last a lifetime, and we are proud of our Cape Town Teens for participating whole-heartedly and making the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
