The Homeland Project
The Palestinian American Community Center (PACC) proudly launches its third annual Homeland Project. The Homeland Project is organized and supervised by PACC. The Homeland Project is a journey designed to offer participants a fun and educational experience of Palestine. The program intends to send its third group of travelers in the Summer of 2019. The program consists of three main components:
- A 10-day guided and interactive journey through occupied and historic Palestine
- Pre-trip preparation consisting of a mandatory one-day conference on Sunday, March 24th
- Post-trip activities and/or projects conducted under the supervision of the Homeland Project Steering Committee
The trip is a ten-day journey through the sites and landscapes of Palestine. Participants will be offered a once-in-a-lifetime experience to tour the country, explore its lands, delve into its rich history, taste its vibrant culture, and rediscover the roots of Palestine and its people. Participants will explore major cities, visit Palestinian refugee camps, engage in some community service and tour historical and cultural sites. They will travel to universities and meet with students and professors in thriving Palestinian institutions. Participants will also interact with Palestinians from different cultural and religious backgrounds. The journey throughout Palestine will provide participants a well-rounded on-the-ground experience they will never forget.
