This year, for one week (July 1-8) the Mossawa Center will host its third international volunteer program for young adults, aged between 20 and 30, to learn about the lives of the Palestinian community in Israel.
The aim of the volunteer program, organized by the Mossawa Center and the Committee for Educational Guidance for Arab Students (CEGAS), is to raise social awareness about the Palestinian community in the context of Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Volunteers will have the unique opportunity to travel across the country and work in local communities like Taibeh, Tamra, the Galilee village of Ein Mahel, Haifa, Tira, Qalansawi and the Occupied Syrian Golan Heights. The community service work will be followed by a recreational tour to different regions to learn about Palestinian culture, customs and heritage. The tour also aims at building relationships between Palestinians on both sides of the Green Line and youth from all over the world.
