Chess Mates granted children access to the game of Chess in their local libraries throughout the summer. Because Chess is a game that teaches patience, mathematics, and productive foresight, and increases brain power in children and adults, Chess Mates would effectively give children a productive outlet for the summer while also increasing their intellectual capacity and exposing them to their local libraries.

Denny’s Blueprint, Camp I Have a Dream, serve youth of the Dheisha and Jalazone refugee camps, near Bethlehem, Palenstine and Ramallah, Palestine (respectively), with a week of seminars and workshops that teach alternative methods of activism, civic engagement, and non-violent resistance. The programs are targeted towards 10-16 year olds, a demographic that is out of school for the summer, largely unemployable, living in their most formative years, and the leaders of tomorrow. The summer camps combine a series of workshops ranging from leadership in sports led by Peace Players International and Basketball PAL, to online activism led by facilitators and bloggers from Soliya Connect, to college prep seminars by counselors from Bir Zeit University, to self-expression through art and photography, to demos in non-violence protest.

Amina’s Blueprint was implemented to urge students on her campus to consistently uphold and advocate civil rights, justice, and tolerance. It focused primarily on addressing issues of religious discrimination against Muslims and the social factors the allow for such intolerance to be perpetuated. This project helped raise awareness surrounding issues pertaining to Muslim students, allowing them to be received with reasonable consideration and accommodation rather than be hostility or apathy, thus allowing Muslims to be better understood and accepted within the rich fabric of American pluralism, not stereotyped and alienated.
