    Zajel Youth Exchange Program _ Project “BE THE CHANGE” in Palestinian Territory

    Zajel is a youth exchange programme that was established by An-Najah National University in 2001. United for Empowerment is one of Zajel’s promising projects and this year will offer the opportunity for international volunteers to choose to work with, and provide support for, either Palestinian students or refugee children. The latter includes the experience of life in one of the Palestinian refugee camps, which unfortunately are home to many people in Palestine. Zajel Youth Exchange Program (Zajel means “dove”) is an official educational program at the Public Relations Department of An-Najah National University in Nablus, Palestine. An-Najah National University is one of the universities in Palestine, founded in 1977. Students come from different regions of Palestine, in search of knowledge and education. Furthermore, the university focuses on the active and responsible participation of the students in community life. All students are strongly encouraged to perform volunteer work for the university or for the community. Zajel Youth Exchange Program offers the opportunity for local students to participate in the camps and other international exchanges in order to experience intercultural dialogue. We intend to have a gender-balanced camp. One well-trained local volunteer will take the responsibility of leading the camp.
