A Summer Experience for Diaspora Palestinian Youth and Friends
(Age 14-17)

Connections

International teens will pair up with local Ramallah families, living with their family in home-stays. Together they will experience Palestinian culture as a part of their new extended family.  Most 'host families' will include the teens in their own extended family, sharing excursions and outings with them.  Introductions to Palestinian, culture, cuisine, life and work, and the Arabic language will be reinforced and personalized through these home stays.

“Living with Palestinian families provided the youth from abroad with an intimate understanding of the warmth and hospittality that runs deep in Ramallah and across Palestine.” - Sa’ed Atshan, Former Director
