Due to the challenges and uncertainties caused by the coronavirus, the 2020 Summer Program is canceled.

Join us for this life-changing experience by becoming a participant or a host family during our next Summer Program in 2021. Hands of Peace seeks participants who are current high school students, who are deeply interested in learning about the many complexities of the conflict, and who are open to having a powerful, challenging, and exciting intercultural experience.

All participants and host families must complete the online application and have an interview with a Hands of Peace staff member or volunteer.  Successful Israeli and Palestinian applicants must be proficient in conversational English. Successful U.S. applicants must be available to participate in all the program activities (daytime and evening) and must also participate in preparatory orientation sessions prior to the Summer Program.
