IATF Speakers Fellowship

for Arab/Palestinian Citizens of Israel

The IATF Fellowship provides six Arab/Palestinian changemakers in Israel with opportunities to build key leadership skills while meeting and learning about American Jewish communities and raising awareness about Arab citizens of Israel and topics that are important to you.  

Through the Fellowship, Arab citizens in the fields of civil society, shared society, activism, and social entrepreneurship will learn public speaking and storytelling as a professional skill, with specific focus on meeting with and speaking to English-speaking audiences. Fellows will gain deep exposure to American Jewish communities, their role and engagement in Israeli society, and in the civil sector specifically. The program will help Fellows to grow professionally, explore their own stories, and expand their networks. Fellows will get to share their perspectives, expertise, experiences, and visions with American Jewish communities and leaders, a population that has interest and influence in Israel but rarely has opportunities to hear Arab and Palestinian perspectives firsthand.
