In early 2014, UUJME began offering scholarships to young adult UUs, age 18-35, for travel to Israel-Palestine. We asked each scholarship applicant to create a travel proposal as either a self-designed trip or as part of an existing delegation. We also asked them to plan post-trip outreach in their UU and local communities, including blogging for this or other blogs. Scholarship winners were chosen based on how their travel proposals furthered UUJME's charter and goals.
In addition, one of the co-leaders of the UUJME Human Rights Delegation to Israel-Palestine in 2015 is a young adult, Rosie McInnes.
These blog entries are written by our young adult travelers. Note that some entries might be posted under a pseudonym until the author's travel has been completed. Whenever this is the case, we will make note of it.
