Mifne 2525 is a new program designed for intelligent young men and women who are exempt from the army for medical reasons or other reasons. The program is part of HILMA - innovation for society, a non-profit venture established by Hi-tech executives to transform Israel into a global leader in social Hi-tech.
As part of the two-year program, participants will receive technological training and develop innovative software-based applications for education, health, and welfare for disadvantaged populations and people with disabilities.
In this challenging National Service, surrounded by the best minds of the Hi-tech industry, you will specialize in a wide range of advanced technologies and computer languages. You will gain a lot of practical experience in developing projects and learning how to take a good idea and make it into a viable product.

At the end of each week there is a mini hackathon - creating a mini project on the material learned.
The course is very intensive and based on multiple self learning courses in English. The teaching and some of the material is in Hebrew.

The work is in teams of 5-6 developers. Each team receives a project and a plan they are expected to execute. The teams are accompanied by a leading team of senior Hi-tech professionals.
In the second year, the projects are more complicated and are carried out by leading Hi-tech companies.
Professional and Personal Development:
In addition to technical development, there are dozens of enriching courses on social issues that are given during the year, including lectures and tours (to familiarize students with the target populations of the technological developments), visits to high-tech companies, participation in various technological events as mentors, visits from abroad, recreational and cultural activities, talks with senior officials in business and technology, advanced professional training and more.
