Excellence Center was established in June 2011 as a youth initiative to offer educational and community services to its diverse group of internationals and Palestinians.
Since the beginning, the Excellence Center has hosted over 130 international teachers and volunteers from every corner of the world in order to engage students and community members in English language learning, and in activities that promote and bridge cultural understanding between peoples, as well as within the Palestinian culture itself.
During the past four years the Center has continued to organize activities that will benefit the Hebron community at large. Such activities have included clothing collections for folks in the refugee camps, summer camps for school children, English language workshops teaching and facilitating the writing of resumes, interoffice memo writing, office email writing, and job interviewing. The Hebron community is presented with a myriad of cultural activities that serve to entertain and educate. These activities include food festivals, musical concerts, Ramadan iftar meals, cultural workshops addressing cultural differences between peoples, and many other events.
The Excellence Center’s programs are singular and unique opportunities for internationals seeking to make a difference in the lives of others, as well as their own. The opportunity to work at the Excellence Center provides international teachers and volunteers with not only first-hand knowledge of Palestinian life and culture in Hebron and the West Bank, with all the political realities, but also direct experience in actually living that life with Palestinians.
