Informational Session on Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon 
(& How You Can Get Involved!)

Monday, 6 February 2012, 6:30 PM


Hunter College (Entrance on 68th Street and Lexington Avenue), 695 Park Ave, Hunter West Room 619

Please join Hunter-SJP and LEAP volunteers for a report back and informational session. Returned LEAP volunteers will share their experiences working in Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon during the summer of 2011 (Shatila and Bourj-el-Barajneh).  They will also provide information about the situation of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. Topics covered will include legal status, health care, education, housing, preservation of cultural heritage, law enforcement, and ways to get actively involved.

Learning for the Empowerment and Advancement of Palestinians (LEAP) is an educational empowerment program for Palestinian refugee-youth in Lebanon dedicated to nurturing the intellectual growth and creative curiosity of its students. LEAP encourages youth to become agents of change by supporting them in their educational pursuits during their most formative years.

LEAP aims to illuminate the plight of Palestinian refugees, particularly in Lebanon, through volunteer-run educational programs and scholarship opportunities, as well as to facilitate a rich cultural exchange and deepen our understanding of Palestinian refugees.
