Each session offers :
A five-day orientation program. The orientation week will take place in Israel and the West Bank and include meetings and visits to Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Bil’in, Ramallah, Nazareth, as well as in kibbutzim, refugee camps and settlements around Jerusalem. The orientation week is a very informative and educative experience but also a great opportunity for you to meet and get to know the other FFIPP interns from all over the world.
A one-month internship/volunteering position with a partner organisation (a NGO, a research program, an cultural institution…) in Israel or the Palestinian territories. Above all, a great human experience!
Meetings with Palestinians and Israeli students committed to peace and justice.
Supervision before, during and after the internship session by FFIPP coordinators (including a preparation week-end in France with mandatory attendance ; distribution of an “Intern Guide” before the programme ; several moments for reflection and evaluation ; coordinator support throughout the programme with reinforcement during the orientation and closing weeks).
Partner organisations offer internship positions in the following areas:
- Animation, projects with children
- French and English classes
- Grassroots work (eg. women’s rights, farmers union, Bedouin rights)
- Art related projects (music, theatre)
- Human Rights
- Development, Environment
- Fundraising for research, organisation’s development
- Research (eg.law, journalism, urbanism, social sciences)
The content of the work may vary (from working with children to research activity) but the emphasis lies on the human character of the experience the program offers, and the opportunity to attempt to grasp the complexity of the Middle-Eastern conflict on the ground.
The student will need to be aware of the fact that although there will be possibilities to contribute to the work of the partner host organisation during his internship, the program represents above all an opportunity to learn.
Please note that the current situation does not allow us to send interns to the Gaza Strip.
A few details…
FFIPP will take care of all orientation week expenses (transportation, accommodation) as well as the costs of accommodation during the internship period. However, expenses for food and transportation is the student’s responsibility as well as the costs of transport to and from Israel.
Subscription to a personal insurance is mandatory.
The FFIPP team will gladly advise you with regards to internship grants (local community, university…) in order to help you finance your internship.
