LongBoarding4Peace Young Leadership Program

Project Aim

This project fosters values of peace and coexistence between Jeiwsh and Arab youngsters from Jaffa, by improving attitudes toward the "other" and diffusing stereotypes using the tool of longboard skating. The participants develop cross cultural communication skills, learn the language of the "other" and take part in young leadership workshops.

How it Works

15 nine and tenth graders from Jaffa, of Jewish and Arab backgrounds, will take part in longboard training with professional coaches. Integrated in this training are also community and leadership workshops. After completing this program, the participants are invited join the Peres Center's sports department as young leaders.
