Good luck to our beloved Sarah, the outgoing Kids4Peace Jerusalem Youth Director.
Sarah Stone was in charge of the educational programming and curriculum development for all youth programs in Kids4Peace Jerusalem. Sarah is dedicated to informal education in divided societies, and in bringing youth together to learn, grow, and create change. Sarah left Jerusalem this past January to complete her Master’s of Public Administration in Urban & Social Policy at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs in NewYork. Her degree is in the Education Policy track with a focus on Management.
“I am focusing on education policy in divided cities, and on the role of informal education in developing educational frameworks for youth of different backgrounds to build understanding, empathy, and advocacy skills together.”
While in New York, she is working in after-school educational programs and also working in research on school integration in the American and New York City contexts.
She’ll be briefly in Jerusalem this summer directing the summer day camp at the Hand in Hand school, and very much miss the Kids4Peace youth, parents, and staff communities!
Sarah stepped away from her responsibilities at Kids4Peace this summer due to her studies and the limited amount of time in between semesters. She’ll be staying in New York until December to complete her studies, and then we hope she’ll return to Jerusalem and Kids4Peace.
