Offer: Social Justice Summer Study Abroad Program in Israel-Palestine
The Center for Transformative Education, a new educational initiative that offers empowering educational programs to help transform societies into their potential, is seeking motivated student leaders for this one-of-a-kind summer program, Beyond Bridges: Israel-Palestine (BB:IP).
Beyond Bridges: Israel Palestine is a summer program that takes university students to the Middle East on a journey of comparative conflict analysis and conflict transformation. The program combines rigorous academics and practical hands-on training, allowing students to explore questions at the core of all conflicts. This program aims to create spaces for both personal and collective growth, helping students gain new understandings of the roles they play in international conflicts, and how this relates to their political identities. Moving beyond the stage of practical peace agreements, or “beyond bridges,” we challenge participants to look at long-term solutions to end inter-communal conflict, transforming societies into their true potential.
