EXCEL: Exploring Conflict, Education

and Leadership

Program Overview:

Inspired by the internationally famous Conflict Transformation Across Cultures program (CONTACT), in the summer of 2016, Jerusalem Peacebuilders hosted the inaugural EXCEL: Exploring Conflict, Education, and Leadership Institute for adults at Acer Farm in Brattleboro, Vermont.

In 2019, in partnership with Retorika for Multiculturalism, the University of Cambridge, Oranim Academic College of Education, and the Israeli Ministry of Education, EXCEL was offered in the UK as a nine-day professional development program for Israeli Jewish and Arab educators, combining peacebuilding, critical reflection, networking, curriculum design, and language studies to empower participants with an array of professional skills, relationships and recognition.

EXCEL’s peacebuilding component aims to increase educators’ capacities to integrate the practices of peacebuilding and youth leadership in their classrooms and curricula. The program engages educators through experiential and hands-on andragogy suitable to adaptation for high school classrooms. While learning skills, participants will build group relations to foster understanding, empathy and community.

Program Locations and Dates:

 

The program is held at the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, UK and is conducted in an urban environment.
