Cross-cultural Programs

Israel/Palestine

Cross-cultural experiences are invitations to explore and grow. They offer a journey of personal discovery into the richness and challenges of other cultures and communities. Immersed in new environments, you will experience diverse lifestyles, make new friendships and learn respect for other heritages all while meeting personal challenges that build character. And, you'll get hands-on opportunities to focus on the issues of peace and reconciliation and begin toward a path of lifelong mission and service.
