About Us


We provide joyful and top-quality English and SAT Prep summer programs for Palestinian youth.

Our 10th-11th graders made over 100 points in SAT growth on average. Over 95% of our students and 100% of our teachers would recommend the program to a friend or relative.


We have Palestinians students from Ramallah and other cities, grades K-9 in our English Enrichment summer camps, and grades 10-11 in our SAT Prep program. We have served over 500 Palestinian students over the last four years from the Friends School in Ramallah, as well as schools in Nablus, Jerusalem, and elsewhere. All interested students are welcome!


We recruit experienced and effective American English teachers to teach in the program through Teach for America and other professional networks. We have had over 30 teachers from across the US participate in our program. Our staff is made up of passionate, motivated, hard-working, and top-quality English teachers who are excited to be in Palestine and learn from the community in addition to teaching English.


We partner with individuals, families, schools, and organizations to engage our students and staff in community service to prepare them to be leaders for social justice in the future.
