The below information was shared on the PJSA e-list. I gather that the April 5 deadline form the July delegation has been waived.
Here is a snap shot of the delegations and their upcoming dates:
Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Leaders
Dates: July 14-27, 2012
Leaders: Diana Buttu & Maia Carter Hallward
Deadline to Apply: ; April 5, 2012
About the Theme: This delegation will explore current realities of life for Israelis and Palestinians, including settlements, the occupation, and the peace process—by learning directly from those living there. We will also explore issues relevant to young people in the region, including efforts to educate and empower future generations working towards a just resolution to the conflict. Our itinerary will feature meetings with leaders of civil society groups, grassroots organizers, Palestinian and Israeli youth, religious leaders and more.
Olive Harvest Delegation
Dates: October 21 – November 3, 2012
Leaders: Cindy Corrie & Andy Clarno
Deadline to Apply: July 1, 2012
About the Theme: This delegation will provide an opportunity to participate in the Palestinian olive harvest season — generally a time of great community activism, where people of all ages from Palestine, Israeli peace and justice groups, and international groups join farmers as they reap their harvest. It is international support that makes the harvest possible in many cases. You will hear from Palestinian farmers and learn of the importance of agriculture to the Palestinian economy and culture. As with other delegations, you will also meet additional Israelis and Palestinians working for peace and justice.
African Heritage Delegation
Dates: October 21 – November 3, 2012
Leaders: Darryl Jordan
Deadline to Apply: August 1, 2012
About the Theme: The African Heritage delegation will travel in Israel/Palestine for two weeks and meet with members of Palestinian and Israeli civil society, human rights organizations, grassroots activists and others. Specific meetings will also feature African Heritage communities in Israel/Palestine, Jews of color (Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews), Palestinian refugees, and others whose unique experiences will contribute to the educational and activist aim of the delegation.

Diana Buttu is a Palestinian-Canadian lawyer. After earning a law degree from Queen’s University in Canada and a Masters of Law from Stanford University in the U.S., Diana moved to Palestine in 2000. There, she served as an advisor to the Palestinian Negotiating Support Unit. She has also been involved in numerous projects to influence the way in which the situation in Palestine/ Israel is depicted by the media and litigation at the International Court of Justice in The Hague. She is currently a Joint Fellow at the Harvard University School of Government, Middle East Initiative and the Eleanor Roosevelt visiting fellow in the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School.
Maia Carter Hallward is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Affairs at Kennesaw State University and is jointly appointed to the PhD for International Conflict Management. She serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Peacebuilding and Development. She received her PhD in International Relations from American University’s School of International Service, with concentrations in Peace and Conflict Resolution and Critical Geopolitics. She is the author of Struggling for a Just Peace: Israeli and Palestinian Activism in the Second Intifada and co-editor of Nonviolent Resistance in the Second Intifada: Activism and Advocacy. Maia worked for four years in the Middle East, including teaching and research positions in Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Amman. She led an IFPB Delegation in 2006.
The cost of the delegation will be $2100. This includes 13 days of the delegation, hotel and home stay accommodations, breakfasts and dinners, local transportation, guides, speaker/event fees, basic tips and gratuities. Partial scholarships may be available for those with demonstrable need.
The cost does not include domestic and international airfare. Interfaith Peace-Builders works with a local travel agent in Jerusalem to secure the best group rates for the delegation to travel together on the same flight from Washington, DC to Israel/Palestine. Therefore, delegates do not need to book their own international airfare. Delegates will be expected make arrangements to be in Washington DC by 2pm on July 14, 2012.
