Community & Youth Engagement

Seeds of Peace supports and facilitates educational projects, led by alumni of its Educator Programs, that inspire civic engagement and transform classrooms, schools, and communities.

Women of Action

Co-founded by Israeli and Palestinian women involved with the Seeds of Peace Educators Program, Women of Action empowers women to play an active role in conflict transformation through training seminars and workshops focused on understanding and enhancing the role of women in peace-building. The group will also design and lead cooperative action projects to engage youth and benefit their communities.

Bara’em el-Salaam Camps

Seeds of Peace organizes local Bara’em el-Salaam (Sprouts/Buds of Peace) Camps for hundreds of young children in the West Bank and Gaza that introduce themes of civic engagement, leadership, and peacebuilding. Palestinian alumni from Seeds of Peace youth and educator programs work together to design and lead each camp.

“By learning community building, communication skills, teamwork [and] cooperation among their fellow Palestinians first, they will be better prepared when confronted by ‘the other side.’ ”
— Karen (Palestinian Educator, Camp Leader)
