Summer 2019 is shaping up to be yet another record-breaking summer for JPB, with five summer institutes scheduled to launch for youth and adults in July and August. In total, we received more than 210+ applications and are expecting approximately 125 participants (Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Druze) to attend our programs. The Summer Institutes include highly qualified teens from over twenty schools across the Holy Land, of which several are current partners with JPB in offering JPB's signature Leadership and Peacebuilding courses to their students. The JPB-Retorika EXCEL Institute for adults will include a diverse array of passionate Israeli and Palestinian teachers from both private and public high schools across Israel. Below are the dates of our 2019 Summer Institutes:
Voyager (TX): July 31 - August 8
Service-Learning (CT): August 4 - 14
Interfaith Citizenship (TX): July 31 - August 12
Leadership (VT): July 14 - 28
JPB-Retorika EXCEL (UK): July 21 - 29
We are still on the hunt for a few more committed volunteers for our VT and CT programs. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in supporting our teens this summer!
