Programs

1) The entry point of our work is a three-week summer camp outside Santa Fe, New Mexico that uses art and dialogue to introduce the story of the "other", foster understanding and friendship, teach good communication, and build confidence and self-awareness. 2) The program continues year-round in Israel and Palestine with reunions of all participants, small sessions organized by location and language, meetings of mothers and daughters, and other gatherings. 3) Young women who wish to make a deeper commitment join our young leader program, where they develop the emotional resiliency and practical skills needed to be leaders and peacemakers for the rest of their lives. 4) Creativity for Peace also awards a limited number of academic scholarships to young women in our program who have financial need and demonstrate extraordinary leadership. Currently two students at Birzeit University in Ramallah, Palestine receive scholarships. 5) As part of a strategic review we are looking at ways to work with US youth using our methodology to promote alternatives to violence.
