In 2018, Jerusalem Peacebuilders (JPB) partnered with Creating Friendships for Peace (CFP) on a home-stay extension program for Israeli and Palestinian youth participating in JPB's summer institutes. This exciting opportunity introduces Middle East teens to American culture and family life, while strengthening their leadership and peacebuilding skills through examination of the Cyprus conflict between Turkey and Greece.
Creating Friendships for Peace (CFP) brings together teenagers from both Cypriot communities to promote peaceful interaction and understanding between the two groups. CFP is a year-long peace-building and leadership training program in Cyprus, with a four-week cultural exchange component in the United States during the summer. 
Program Overview:
 
The JPB-CFP Home-Stay program features Israeli and Palestinian teens from JPB summer Institutes being selected as "peace pairs" to live in American family homes for an two additional weeks in the USA. The home-stay programs are held in Washington D.C., New Hampshire, and California. Through social meetings and cultural exchanges, community service-projects, visits to government offices and non-profit organizations, and leadership and peacebuilding workshops, the teens will build upon the important progress made in JPB summer institutes.
