Overview of the Conflict Resolution Program (CRP)

“I have met Jewish students in the past but have never spoken with them about these issues. I felt I was allowed to speak my own truth, and to learn to listen differently. Young people have to be the leaders in changing the relationship between Jews and Arabs.”
Hiba, from Sachnin:
“I came to the meeting to voice my own opinions, hoping to gain understanding from my Arab peers, but I left with an understanding of my own that the other side has its own narrative that I also have to listen to.”
Yair, from Petach Tikva:

Conflict Resolution Program Fees

Delegates will be charged a Participation Fee of 500 NIS.
The fee includes participation in all sessions, a hot kosher meal on all session dates, and entrance to the TIMEMUN conference.

One of our goals to make sure that the fees never prevent any individual or school from participating — as part of the registration process, schools may apply for financial aid.
