Communities are developed within the interactive arena (smartphone, tablet, computer) stripping away geographic barriers to facilitate connecting mentors to the right candidates.
Mentors are seasoned professionals in their fields seeking to provide various levels of support to Candidates. This support can take the form of coaching, providing connections relevant to the industry, and even financial investment. Mentors enjoy providing practical support to Olim, and consider the IAF platform smart tool for targeting lucrative investment opportunities.
Candidates form a community of Olim seeking direction from an expert in their field. Candidates can benefit from the coaching they receive from seasoned pros, and often are ushered through the countless challenges, social and financial, with greater ease. Candidates can also benefit from receiving financial backing from their mentors who choose to commit to the Oleh’s business venture, and play a more significant role in turning their dream into reality.
To Join the IAF community at-large, both mentors and candidates can register online after answering a few simple questions. Joining the Israel Aliyah Fund is free with the option to upgrade to a premium membership for a modest fee. All membership levels receive the same state-of-the-art ‘matching’ services driven by our proprietary algorithm – allowing mentors to easily target their ideal candidate. Premium membership boasts additional perks that make it worth consideration (profile showcase, direct match ping, photos, links, etc.)
