About the Summer School:
The week-long summer school program will bring together 55-65 youth over the age of 18 for intensive political education and movement building, culminating in the National General Assembly (NGA) for PYM. Through a diverse curriculum of lectures, seminars, peer-led workshops and discussions, cultural performances, and meetings with other youth and community groups, the PYM summer school aims to strengthen the cultural and historical knowledge, leadership skills and capabilities of young Palestinian and Arab youth in the U.S. so that they can be protagonists of social change in their families, schools, communities and home struggles. The summer school will focus on building both a strong theoretical foundation among participants through culture, history and political theory education, as well as practical skills for strengthening organizational capacity, practice, and skills.
