More than ever, Israel needs young leaders.
"Rakia” project was built to train and empower the next generation of leaders in the Israeli society, in both public and private sectors, based on the IAF culture and unique proven methods.
Who are we?
We are Israeli Air Force Apache pilots past and present, gathered to establish an innovative leadership academy based on our professional experience and organizational culture.
We believe, from years of experience, that the ability to influence the IDF and the Israeli society is dependent on new leadership - One that believes in innovation, entrepreneurship, ability to cope with changing environments, and to constantly recover from failures towards a noble mutual goal.
How we can do that?
We have decided to make a change in Israeli society by providing practical tools to students, rooted in the IAF culture.
Establishing a leadership academy that will cultivate a sense of responsibility, excellence and leadership among young individuals with outstanding potential, from a variety of backgrounds within the Israeli society.
Foster a young group of leaders charged with responsibility for the future of the State of Israel based on two flagship programs:
- Pre-Military Leadership Academy (starts September 2020)
- Advanced Leadership program post military service (starts 2023)
First Preparatory Year
