Event description

Description

NSL selects the brightest emerging leaders from Israel and Palestine who come from diverse political, religious and professional backgrounds and equips them with the tools necessary to create a new story of economic, political and social change.

10 Delegates live in Palestinian-Israeli pairs with American host families in Washington, DC for 7 weeks each summer. They have work-placements in Congress in the offices of U.S. Representatives and Senators. By working in Congressional and Senate offices, delegates share their real world, on the ground experiences to policy makers and influencers in Washington. NSL delegates use the Narrative Method to craft their personal stories of their present realities and as team create the new story of re-imagining Israel and Palestine. Afterwards, delegates share their stories at speaking engagements on Capitol Hill and across DC. Finally, each delegate arrives in Washington, DC with a proposed Project for Change (PFC). Working together in Palestinian-Israeli teams, they collaborate on joint social impact projects.

This event will connect New Story Leadership alums, regional peace-builders, business leaders, and diplomats for a unique evening of innovation, discussion, and change.
