MEET (Middle East Education through Technology) is an innovative educational non-profit organisation that is creating an active network of young Palestinian and Israeli leaders who know how to work together to solve mutual problems and create a positive impact in their communities.
In partnership with volunteer instructors from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MEET delivers an intensive three-year technology, business education, and leadership programme to excelling high school students from the Nazareth area, Jerusalem and the West Bank. Students meet once a week to work on real world projects at the MEET Labs in Jerusalem and Nazareth, and at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem during the five week summer programme.
The organisation’s impact is carried through the alumni programme, which invests in the professional development of the MEET network, supports successful career trajectories and incubates entrepreneurial projects led by MEET alumni at the Venture Lab. MEET’s Nazareth hub brings together Arab and Jewish students from the north and will be hosted at Stef Wertheimer’s new industrial park in Nazareth.
