IT TAKES A SMALL VILLAGE TO RUN THE HANDS OF PEACE PROGRAMS IN SAN DIEGO AND CHICAGO, AND YOU CAN HELP!

Throughout the year, Hands of Peace relies on the passion and skills of dedicated volunteers. We would love to find a spot that matches your talents and availability and help you become a part of our team.

There are various ways to become involved. During our summer program (July 6-25th) you will be able to meet with young Israeli, Palestinian, and American leaders and assist in executing educational and social events.

Volunteers help with things like:

- recruiting host families
- providing meals during the summer program
- planning events like the Farewell Celebration and Culture Night
- helping in the office with technical support
- writing grants for financial assistance

Please volunteer however you can. Any help is appreciated!

For more information on volunteer opportunities, email our Chicago Site Director at ekenward@handsofpeace.org or visit our website.
