The JAI has started in June 2020 a training program for Palestinian secondary school' students in the age of 15-16 years, where coordination was made with 2 schools and a youth center the students came from, with variety of backgrounds.
Those are namely the Melkite Catholic School in Beit Sahour, Al-Khader village Secondary School for Girls, and Shoruq Organization in Dhaisha Refugee Camp, where more than 40 students have joined the program.
The training program includes 12-14 training sessions in advocacy, presentation skills, how to talk about the Israeli measures on the ground, the BDS campaign, Kairos Palestine, and others, in the forms of exercises, games, discuss groups, performances, field visits and others. Two sessions were implemented so far with caution procedures, with more than a month pause due to covid-19 lockdown.
Those trainees will also be later part of students exchange programs with partner Danish Efterskoles, where, God welling, some Palestinian students will be selected to visit these Danish schools this fall, and programs in Palestine will be organized in Spring 2021 for classes from those schools.
