Israel: New Media for Rising Activists

A training program for a young activist group (ages 18-25). To continue their activism for universal human rights, just peace, and an end to occupation, skills in new media, photography and video will be cultivated and applied to document human rights violations. The stories will be communicated via a shared blog to raise awareness. The group will then conduct localized training for the next generation of youth activists, multiplying the impact.

Israel: Project Harmony: Collaboration Through Service (CTS)

CTS is a program for Arab and Jewish teens from Jerusalem to see a self-directed service-learning project from concept to completion. After a series of skill-building workshops teens will identify an issue in their community, design a service project and implement it collaboratively. Integral to CTS is a focus on generating shareable documentation (through multimedia citizen-mapping) in order to encourage dynamic sustainability of impact.
