CFP Team Continues to Grow

Alexis Eskenazi, U.S. Teen Liaison

Alexis lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and is a junior at Castilleja School.  Alexis and her family hosted an Israeli-Palestinian pair of teens with CFP in 2019. The following summer, she helped lead a team of CFP alumni, administrators, and US teen volunteers to develop CFP’s first alumni survey, which explored strategic initiatives under consideration by CFP. Alexis aided in interpreting the survey results, which led to the development of CFP’s 2021 Pilot Peacebuilding Seminar for US teens held in spring and to new alumni initiatives and programs held in summer. She also participated in the US pilot seminar, graduating with a Certificate of Excellence. In her ongoing role, she will collaborate with CFP leadership and alumni from the US, Cyprus, and Israel-Palestine to enhance the long-lasting bonds of friendship among alumni.  This includes the possible expansion of the role of US teen hosts and could help to open new hosting areas to accommodate the increasing international interest in CFP’s peacebuilding program.
