Spring 2011 Session Under Way in Nablus!

TYO Spring 2011 Interns
TYO Spring 2011 Interns
This semester, TYO is happy to provide nearly five hundred community members with the opportunity to engage their creative talents and harness their energy in a safe and productive environment. The follow articles highlight the start of a few recent collaborations where TYO participants--children, volunteers, interns and mothers--combine enthusiasm, education and inspiration to showcase their bright potential.

Spring 2011 Interns
TYO is pleased to introduce the latest, stellar members of our Nablus team. Welcome, Spring Interns: Adam, Mathilda, Colin and Leila! These energetic and diversely talented, young adults are teaching a variety of courses in photography, athletics and English and elevating the importance of intercultural dialogue and cross-cultural connections between the Nablus community and their own.
 TYO and the US Sate Department Partner to Promote Literacy
Have you ever imagined Nablus twenty years from now? We do, a lot! TYO has partnered with MEPI to promote literacy and civic volunteerism within the upcoming generation. On Saturday, February 19, 2011, TYO, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, completed the final workshop in the training series for the new TYO-MEPI literacy collaboration. Thirty university students, ten mothers and several TYO staff members completed the training and will now begin teaching children (ages 6-8) how to read. Check out photos from the training series on TYO’s Facebook Page.

TYO kids excited by the National Children's Museum
Over the course of the last year, TYO kids created artwork for several exhibits on Nablus at the National Children’s Museum in Washington, DC. The exhibits displayed artworks inspired by Palestinian food and holiday traditions and customs. This month in Nablus, TYO is thrilled to display a collection of postcards sent by children in Washington, DC to their Nablus peers that share their favorite playtime activities.
As always thank you for your support and keep in touch with us on GlobalGiving, Facebook, and our blog. We'd love to hear from you!
