The training included the themes of citizenship and belonging, Kairos Palestine, BDS campaign and normalization, history of the Palestinian cause and the conflict, as well as guided tours to witness the wall, settlements, refugee camps, which allow the students to represent their country and cause nationally and internationally.

The JAI selects some of the trained students to visit the JAI partner Danish schools in November, while the whole students and both classes are to join the Danish students' programs in Palestine during March 2014.
