In recent years, StandWithUs has increased its scope of activity to reach into high school
classrooms by identifying the need to train, empower, and inspire
younger students prior to their entrance into college.
Our high school department provides educational workshops, seminars,
presentations, and resources to high schools across North America.
Our main goal is to inspire high school students, providing these services to Jewish day schools,youth groups,
teen organizations, educators, and public schools that do not commonly have the resources
to delve into such a hotly contested topic as the Arab-Israeli conflict.
In 2012 we started the StandWithUs High School Internship program --
a yearlong mentorship for Jewish high school students that trains, educates,
and inspires them to be leaders once they enter college.
StandWithUs High School Educational Approach
We take a holistic approach to education, balancing the complicated details with the big picture. We focus on understanding the facts and the different perspectives about them within Israel and beyond, acknowledging that everyone brings different experiences, values, levels of knowledge, and political views to the conversation. Our approach integrates social-emotional learning, relationship-centered learning, and student-centered active learning. We encourage the students with whom we work to be responsible for their own education, grapple with the issues, and form their own opinions via thoughtful, critical, nuanced discussion and exploration of the material.
