The Halutz Initiative for Global Leadership is an immersive program led by scholars and scientists from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, which prepares a select group of promising individuals to turn their passions into practical solutions – for BGU, the Negev,​ Israel and the world.

Through virtual meetings and an intensive week-long seminar in Israel, the Halutz Initiative serves as an incubator for a new kind of pioneer: forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, socially minded supporters of Israel equipped with leadership qualities and a nuanced understanding of the most critical issues of the day.  ​
