Tomorrow’s Youth is an innovative organization that provides holistic, multi-generational programs to transform the lives of Palestinians. As the first American non-profit organization based in Nablus, TYO developed its model in close collaboration with local communities and engages children, youth, and parents in productive, formative, and fulfilling activities. Our programming bridges divides of age, socio-economic status, religion, gender, and culture to form a more peaceful global community. We prioritize the acquisition of sustainable skills, such as creativity, peaceful communication, identity building, and problem solving, that will serve our participants throughout their lives. Through this integrated approach, TYO participants acquire tangible skills for life and work, while also becoming healthier, more self-confident, and hopeful about their potential to contribute to their community’s brighter future. We have a diverse and multicultural team that ensures that we are constantly learning from each other. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives.
