sends volunteers to the Middle East to work with Palestinians on a short-term basis in the summer, to teach English or to take part in other activities as needed
brings Palestinian teachers of English to Britain in order to study language courses and refresh their language by living with British families
in the past has had long term volunteers teaching students and adults in need of better English.
Volunteers should be native English speakers, living in the UK and must be 20+ on January 1st in the year in which they volunteer. There is no upper age limit but it is very demanding work in a hot climate, so you need to be fit.
