Program Overview:

The Diplomacy Institute connects participants to civic and international institutions in Geneva, Switzerland. The program brings together American, Israeli, and Palestinian teens in order to deepen cross-cultural relationships, civic responsibility, and develop knowledge of various social and environmental challenges. Participants engage in personal and group challenge activities and learn what local government, faith communities, and service providers are doing to tackle social and environmental issues.

Diplomacy participants engage in intensive writing workshops, learning about key issues surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, dialogue sessions, and visits to community and governmental institutions exploring connections between peace, faith, and environment.
