Green Entrepreneurship is a form of social entrepreneurship that involves starting a venture to address issues related to the environment. This term can also be used to refer to a regular business venture that chooses to invest in environmentally friendly alternatives such as clean energy, energy-efficient office space, and more. At WAIE, the two-week program provides an immersive opportunity for young scholars to learn how to start their own environmentally impactful business.

Providing sustainable and reliable housing for homeless, runaway, and foster youth is essential to improving educational outcomes. Young scholars will be supported by our residential staff and participate in the Hebrew lifestyle while receiving housing, meals, and education.

The Innovation Center is a community space that can be used for social events, immersions, co-working, and more for our youth. This would allow us to reduce the cost of operations for renting facilities from others for events and immersions. Also, we will be able to invite nonprofits and for-profits who serve youth to rent the facility to help raise funds for financial aid and scholarships. The facility will be built on or near the dormitory so young scholars may be paid to work there.
