Hands of Peace
Hands of Peace strives to create impactful and lasting change in communities by developing young Israeli, Palestinian, and American leaders by promoting intercultural exchange and education and through the development of peacebuilding and leadership skills. The Summer Program brings a group of Jewish Israeli, Palestinian Citizens of Israel, and Palestinian teenagers to Chicago and San Diego for a 19-day, dialogue- based experience. They are joined by a comparable number of American teens from Jewish, Christian, Muslim and other faith backgrounds. The following summer, they are encouraged to apply for an enhanced leadership role. Ongoing programming is available for program alumni.
