OUR MISSION


OUR PROGRAMS

2018 TENTATIVE SUMMER PROGRAM DATES ARE JULY 11 - JULY 30

Hands of Peace News Bureau

The Hands of Peace News Bureau will be a source of information for all that is going on during our summer program, featuring articles written by alumni and highlighting different events at each site, along with any media coverage that we receive during the program.

In preparation of International Peace Day on September 21st, we are asking all Alumni, Participant Parents and Host Families to participate in a short 2:minute survey to describe how Hands of Peace has made a difference in your life. We will then showcase these stories on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Please click here to participate. Please join us in filling up Facebook with inspiring stories!


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.
