Summer school for children of single-parent families

18 teenagers from Akko and the surrounding area took advantage of the long summer vacation of the Corona days and its limitations to take part in an extraordinary course that took place in A-CAT and included children from single-parent families with special needs and new immigrants from Arab and Jewish society. The activity took place as part of the unique "Full Steam Ahead" program supported by USAID - the American Agency for International Development and is a collaboration and via a partnership with the Center for Special Families in the Welfare Department, Akko Community Centers, and programs for families headed by an independent parent (single parent).

The youth came to A-CAT to participate in a photography program and other experiential activities such as a stone-carving workshop, a visit to the challenging park in Akko, and a cruise around the city walls. The students' photography works were displayed in a special exhibition, and the photographs were given as a gift to the young photographers. The activity provided a quality response, and they were not long in coming: the children felt equal and wrote about a fantastic experience and training full of creative ideas, and the parents expressed appreciation for a personal, professional. The activity was concluded with a certificate distribution ceremony attended by parents and center principals.
