CHW is feeling the pride as Sarah*, a recent graduate from CHW Nahalal Youth Village has successfully completed the Cyber Shield Course with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
The IDF’s Cyber Shield Course, taught through the school of Computer Studies and Cyber Defense, is one of the most prestigious and highly recognized courses in the country as it enables these graduates to protect Israel against cyber-attacks.
Eighteen-year-old Sarah is now equipped to protect Israel and help defend her country.
Sarah shared, “In high school at [CHW] Nahalal I majored in physics and chemistry. Before this course, I took part in a program of excellence for studies in computers and cyber in the periphery. I received lots of valuable tools there and I was exposed to some of the content I learned in the IDF’s cyber course. Through my studies I discovered that cyber defense is a very interesting field.”
Sarah is an excellent example of how CHW’s youth villages put young adults on the right path to success, empowering young women and instilling within them with the tools to succeed!
