Gap years are a time of growth and deep learning. For the third year, Extend is inviting gap-year participants to join a cohort of fellow students to learn about the occupation and the struggle for democracy and equality in this land. Over the course of a series of learning days you will have the opportunity to meet a broad range of leading Israeli and Palestinian activists, human rights practitioners and residents of threatened communities. With thoughtful facilitated conversation over the course of each learning day, joining the Extend Gap-Year Cohort will provide you with the irreplaceable first-hand experiences to help you engage with these issues in ways aligned with your own values after seeing it for yourself.
The learning days for the Fall cohort will be taking place on the following Fridays:
October 13th – East Jerusalem, October 27th – Jaffa
November 10th – Hebron, December 1st – South Hebron Hills
