FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS

YONATAN DORON Graduate and Music Teacher, CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village Yonatan Doron is an educator and family counselor, having received his training from Israeli television star, Michal Daliyot. Yonatan is an educational consultant for staff in public schools in Israel, as well as informal educational institutions. Yonatan manages a unique educational framework for children with behavioral difficulties, both for elementary school aged children in the city of Bat-Yam, and for youth living in boarding schools. At the age of 10, Yonatan found himself as a child at-risk, and at the age of 14 he arrived at CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village. It was there that he found renewed strength and reclaimed his life. Yonatan has more than 20 years of experience working with a wide variety of children and youth at-risk. As a graduate of CHW Hadassim, it held great meaning to return to the youth village to help the children from the dormitories and family units. At CHW Hadassim, Yonatan is the music coordinator. Yonatan is a published author who has written a guide for parents and education in the new age. The English version of his first book, ‘What Every Child Needs’, was recently released, translated from Hebrew. The guide is written in the format of a diary, with a personal story that is revealed to be Yonatan’s own incredible journey. He recently released his second book ‘Back to the Enchanted Forest of Our Childhood’. We recently caught up with Yonatan Doron, who was a featured performer at the CHW iChange Gala in Toronto. 20
