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


Volunteer work has always been an integral component of Palestinian popular culture. Al-thought the concept of volunteer work has undergone many changes. It has existed for as long as Palestinians have harvested olive trees, if not longer, back then it was referred to as "society aid".

The youth were always heavily involved in such activities, whether it was harvesting olive trees, building houses, digging wells, or any other activity. Giving them a greater sense of devotion for their societies, and a sense of responsibility towards their communities.
