Making the Most of Your Experience

Resources for Beginning Education and Advocacy in Your Community

Many of the resources below are part of an Interfaith Peace-Builders packet provided to each delegate upon return from Israel/Palestine. The focus of IFPB's post-delegation efforts is to encourage and support the civic engagement and grassroots activism of delegation participants.

While these resources are geared towards the opportunities for activism after returning from Israel/Palestine, the information and strategies outlined here are broadly applicable and will benefit anyone interested in promoting constructive change in policy and discourse towards the Israel-Palestine conflict.

  • Feeling Overwhelmed? Surviving the Delegation. . . and your Return
    While almost all delegates have commented on what a transformative and positive experience their delegations were, many of them have also found the transition back from the delegation to ‘real life’ in their home community a challenging and emotional time. This resource addresses some of the challenges in transitioning back to life in North America.
  • Links
    IFPB's hand-selected links include Israeli and Palestinian organizations featured on the delegations as well as sites for news, information and activism in North America.
