Maccabi Young Leadership (MYL)/Maccabi Future Leaders Forum (FLF)
In 2004, MWU Department of Education and the European Maccabi Confederation (EMC) launched the "Maccabi Future Leaders Forum (FLF), a program directed to engage the best young adults into Maccabi leadership throughout Europe, in order to refresh the rows of Maccabi leaders in the Old Continent. This new initiative was defined as “a strong active group of young adults, who care about sport, Maccabi, and Israel. Their mission was to create projects and activities that involved young people around Europe and be EMC's ambassadors in their communities. Young leaders who wanted to make a difference in their countries, communities, and attract more people to join Maccabi, integrate Israel within their activities and meet FLF members from neighboring countries and all over Europe.”
At the same time, MWU also launched their first Maccabi Young Leadership (MYL) group in the United States – groups composed by young adults determined to financially support MWU in its world development and growth.
Both groups met for the first time in 2013 during the 19th Maccabiah in Israel. More than 80 FLF members attended, some of whom hold the most crucial roles in Maccabi Europe – from EMC Vice-Chairman to Makkabi Germany Treasurer. The success of these programs led the MWU Education Department to establish and hold the "GLOBAL MACCABI Future Leaders Program" during the 2015 Plenum. The main goal was to meet the challenge of continuously generating successor leadership in 70 countries where Maccabi acts in over 400 JCCs and clubs & to provide ongoing leadership training. The mission: to bring all new leaders into an effective Jewish-Zionist action worldwide.
MYL & FLF are the guarantee and continuity of our outstanding Maccabi Leadership – and a sensible success in our Movement.
