Michve Alon (Hebrew: מחו"ה אלון‎‎) (Alon Education and Instructional Center) is an IDF military base located near Safed in the Galilee. It belongs to the Education and Youth Corps and specializes in educational programs. The base was named after Yigal Allon.

Until the 1980s, Michve Alon served as the base for the Bislamach Brigade, but that brigade transferred to a base near Yeruham. The base's goal is to train soldiers for special groups, help them integrate into their service, and become productive citizens of Israel.
