SUMMER INSTITUTE RECAP: Six programs operated successfully

In July and August, we conducted a total of six summer institutes for 100+ youth and adults across three continents. Our biggest summer ever! Two programs were offered for teachers in Cambridge, UK and Jerusalem, while four were held for teenagers in Houston and New Haven in the USA. The institutes included: EXCEL (I & II), Voyager, Global Voices, Interfaith Citizens, and Leadership. An impressive series of workshops, dialogue, service-projects, cultural events, and interfaith learning activities comprised each program's curriculum and design. Enjoy the photos below and check out these participant poems and speeches! They give a glimpse into how peace was built this summer:
