How-To Guide

A Guide to Values Building Education

This guide from CRS JWBG addresses Values Building Education. This is a two-year curriculum that guides students through a process of civic engagement and reflection on their relationships with their peers, families, schools and communities. It was designed specifically to counter the feeling among many Palestinian youth that they have little or no control over their environment or their future. In this guide, you will see how numerous actors – communities, parents, teachers, administrators and youth themselves – have been mobilized to implement and support this curriculum.
