A Terrific Summer for TYO's Teens and Tweens

We had such an exciting summer here at TYO! We offered summer camp for youth in the Khallet Al Amood neighborhood, where our center is located, for boys and girls ages 9-14. The classes at summer camp included pyschosocial classes that fostered identity, communication, creativity and team building skills. And thanks to the generous support of donors like you, we were also able to offer karate, "dabke" (traditional Palestinian dance), swimming, and chorus classes - see the final performance of our fantastic singers. We were also honored to welcome Palestinian-American comedian Maysoon Zayid for a day full of fun, laughter, and reflection with TYO's kids on their greatest strengths, fears, and dreams.

We would not be able to offer such enriching programming to our children and youth if it weren't for our donors - we appreciate you all so much. Thank you for making the summer in Nablus absolutely fabulous!

We are excited to announce our newest project to support women entrepreneurs in Palestine: TYO's WISE Toolkit! This Toolkit has been designed to target women in Northern Palestine who dream of opening or expanding their own small business. Through our Toolkit, TYO can continue to support and empower even more women entrepreneurs - including outside of the physical TYO Center. The Toolkit takes users through a six-step process similar to the structure of our in-house entrepreneurship programming. 

The journey through the Toolkit includes psychosocial assessments & quizzes, business plan development guides, branding & marketing tools, resources for financial services, additional support for micro & small business owners in Palestine, and inspirational stories from TYO's women entrepreneurs. We invite you to take a walk through our Entrepreneurial Toolkit which will provide budding entrepreneurs with the foundational building blocks to start their own successful entrepreneurship journeys.

TYO's Curricula: Fostering a Sense of Identity and Community

Week 1: Defining self-value by making nametags
Week 1: Defining self-value by making nametags

We are very excited to announce a major progress update at TYO! Through The Student Training and Employment Program (STEP!), working in coordination with Columbia University’s School of Social Work, we completed the first non-formal education curriculum designed specifically for children in Palestine (ages 4-5, 6-8 and 9-15). In striving to create world-class development programs, we also finalized the TYO Youth Service Learning (YSL) training guide. Our curricula for children emphasizes two main themes of communication and community, building a sense of security, trust, and self-confidence. Developing these life skills empowers children with hope for the future and the skills to lead change in Palestinian society. As a part of the curriculum, integrating psychosocial interventions supports children dealing with conflict, isolation and poverty by strengthening their resilience in the face of challenging circumstances, and in turn contributing to the overall stability of an entire affected community. 

For children ages 4-5 years old, we spend six weeks learning about the themes of identity and community. Take a glimpse into how TYO's curricula comes to life in the classroom (see week one's photo above):
