OUR MISSION


OUR PROGRAMS

2017 SUMMER PROGRAM DATES ARE JULY 12 - JULY 31

2016 Annual Report Available Now!

2016 was a transformative year for Hands of Peace as we embarked on an important expansion of our core programs, creating the opportunity to develop more future leaders and to support the ones we have in a multitude of new ways. You will see how our impact, reach and support base are growing and be dazzled by what our HOP alumni are doing.

Please join us at the culmination of our summer program, as we bring together our local community and supporters and gather to honor our 2017 participants. Hear moving reflections, view powerful two-minute films, and learn first hand from the Israeli, Palestinian and American participants what Hands of Peace means to them.


GET INVOLVED

.

1. Attend HOPEducation nights throughout the year in Chicago and San Diego.

Learn about the conflict from multiple perspectives and how HOP enables teens to raise their voices as leaders of change.

2. Become a host family.

Hosting teens or staff from the Middle East is a window into their world and creates lifelong relationships.

3. Apply to participate, or encourage your teen to apply.

Every year, teens from the U.S. join their Israeli and Palestinian counterparts in the dialogue programs in Chicago and San Diego.

4. Donate your time and talent.

We are always looking for volunteers to assist throughout the year. We have multiple committees that work year round to make sure that we are supporting the goals of the organization.

5. Donate financially.

Your contributions are vital to support our ongoing programming both in the U.S. and the Middle East. Gifts of any size will help us build and sustain momentum.
