However, the society is a non-political and secular organization and does not represent any political or religious points of view. For more information on our collective viewpoint on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, please contact us.

  • What countries participate in the program?

    Our current focus is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Delegations are Canadian, Israeli, and Palestinian (from the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel). As our organization grows, we will expand our work to address the needs of other domestic and international clashes and tensions.

  • What is the age of the youth that participate?

    For the current program we are seeking university students between the ages of 20-27. Participants of our past programs were between 15 and 18 years old.

  • Where is the Peace it Together Summer Program located?

    The summer program takes place in and around Vancouver, Canada.

  • Do participants come back for more than one summer?

    No, program participants can only take the program once. However, we consider bringing back a small number of exemplary leaders from previous years as junior facilitators to act as peer support for new participants.

  • What is the role of the Canadian Delegation and how can I be a part of it?

    Canadians play a very important role at the camp. Much like Canada itself, the Canadians find themselves in a mediation role bringing the Israeli and Palestinians together. They are a big part in creating a safe atmosphere for the Israelis and Palestinians. This is an amazing opportunity for Canadians to learn about international conflicts and culture firsthand. Contact us to become part of the Canadian Delegation.

  • What happens once the summer program ends?

    Ongoing programming is essential to sustaining the achievements fulfilled, and to support the youth to uphold the commitments they made during the summer program. Learn more about how we sustain the impact of our program.

  • How are the participants selected?

    We conduct a competitive screening process both in Canada and the Middle East. We work with Regional Coordinators in both Israel and Palestine to select youth who have the aptitude to become community leaders. We try to select youth from different social economic, political, and religious backgrounds. All of the youth must be able to communicate comfortably in English.
