Thank you for your interest in Creating Friendships for Peace (CFP).
Due to the current unrest, CFP must pause our Middle East Program application process.
Our team is continuing to assess the situation, so please check our website and Facebook page for any updates.
We remain committed to building a more peaceful future for our teens.
In our newly launched Middle East Program, CFP works alongside In-Country Coordinators and with Hebrew-speaking and Arabic-speaking teens to provide selected applicants with workshops in a U.S. summer program with American host families. We facilitate conflict resolution, promote leadership skills with teens from all sides of the conflict and offer opportunities to understand their relevance and future role in peacebuilding, addressing tensions between the young and the old, power, and resources. CFP’s homestay experience offers the teens valuable time in a secure and impartial environment to have honest dialogue with one another and develop long-lasting understanding and friendships.
