Program Overview:
Over two weeks, the Leadership Institute brings together American, Israeli, and Palestinian young adults with the focus of creating a new generation of peacebuilders and leaders. The program challenges participants to consider different perspectives around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In addition it encourages participants to deepen their understanding of faith traditions and develop strategies for taking action in promoting peace.

Leadership participants engage in intensive drama workshops, challenge activities, trainings and dialogue sessions that prepare them for becoming agents of change. Topics covered include: identity, communication, leadership, conflict resolution, interfaith understanding and peacebuilding.

Program Locations and Dates:


The first half of the program is held at Camp Allen in Navasota, TX and the second half at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston, TX. The program is conducted in a mix of rural and urban environments.
