Description

What is the Educational and Cultural Exchange Mission?
The American Federation Educational and Cultural Exchange Mission (AFECEM) was established in 2015 as an effort to connect influential leaders in the United States with the Palestinian people. Our semiannual weeklong missions seek to expose non-Arabs to the rich Palestinian history and culture and inspire you to tell the Palestinian story when you return home. Priority is given to applicants with a wide sphere of influence, including journalists, clergy, elected officials, and educators. All expenses associated with the trip are covered by the American Federation.

What kind of participants is the mission seeking?
AFECEM is looking for non-Arabs who are interested in gaining a better understanding of Palestinian culture, who have open and positive attitudes, and who are excited about being ambassadors for the Palestinian people. Non-Arabs in leadership positions who have a wide sphere of influence are ideal.
