Members that decide to come to this seminar are those who wouldn’t come to the other counselor's seminar. This is due to different reasons. Some are new immigrants from Ethiopia or former Soviet Union countries; others come from low socio-economic neighborhoods. These social groups would not normally join the movement, and this seminar's purpose is to address new audiences and bring them into the movement as equal members.

Members join this seminar after a year of educational process, sometimes two year, during which they are counseled by adult members of the movement. This year about 200 members took part in the seminar.

On the graduation ceremony, at the end of the seminar, two participants gave a speech in front of the parents, and their friends saying: "we decided to talk about the change we have been through during the seminar, each of us as an individual and all of us as a group". They explained that they came to the seminar with a lot of fears and worries about becoming counselors, but they are leaving it ready and willing to change the things that bother them, "each of us in his or her own neighborhood".
