Join us for this life changing experience by becoming a participant or a host family during our Summer Program. Hands of Peace seeks participants who are approximately 15-17 years old, who are deeply interested in learning about the many complexities of the conflict, and who are open to having a powerful, challenging and exciting intercultural experience. All participants and host families must complete the online application and have an interview with a Hands of Peace staff member or volunteer. Middle Eastern teens must be proficient in conversational English and have a valid passport. US teens must be available to participate in all the program activities (daytime and evening) and must also participate in some preparatory sessions prior to the Summer Program. Applications for 2017 are now closed. 2018 applications will open November, 2017.
