Host Family Enrichment

On June 15, Lucy Kurtzer-Ellenbogen, the director of Israel, The Palestinian Territories, and the Region program at the U.S. Institute of Peace, provided CFP’s hosting community with an hour-long discussion on the present state of the conflict, the situational context, and the dynamics at play in forming youth attitudes.

Constituting CFP’s inaugural Host Family Enrichment event, this Zoom meeting offered current and former hosts the opportunity to understand what lies behind the headlines and to gain insight into the value of our immersive homestay model and how best to support our teens during their time in the United States and after their return home.
