Youth Encounters at the School for Peace

Human Rights Program for Jewish and Palestinian Youth

Because of financial difficulties, the School for Peace reduced the number of its youth encounters to 3 or 4 over the school year. But it is currently conducting a program in Human Rights for Israeli and Palestinian youth, in partnership with the organization Care in Ramallah, West Bank.

This dialogue program includes human rights aspects and youth is trained to observe everyday situations from a human rights angle. Groups wrote reports and brought them to the relevant authorities. The idea was to train them to think critically about human rights and to take action. 

There are two parallel groups, one in Israel and one in the West Bank. The two groups will soon meet and share their experiences.

Thank you for your support: it make the School for Peace's programs for youth possible!
