EXCEL WINS GRANT FROM US EMBASSY IN ISRAEL! First gov't grant recognizes impact of JPB programming
In September, JPB learned that it will be awarded a grant from the US government via the Embassy in Israel. The $9,000 grant will underwrite our 2021 EXCEL Institute for Arab and Jewish Israeli teachers. The EXCEL Institute is an advanced program for adult training and education. The program offers a hybrid of English language pedagogy and peacebuilding training, with the ultimate goal of integrating both in high school classrooms. We approach this with local and international partners such as Retorika for Multiculturalism, the Oranim Academic College of Education, and the Israeli Ministry of Education. Applications open in January!
