Seeds of Peace is a non-profit organization that brings together young “historic enemies” from regions of conflict at a Camp in Maine. 

Campers share a living space and engage in dialogue sessions together as part of a conflict transformation program. Right now, teens from the U.S. are at camp tackling issues facing their communities like racism, immigration, and education policy.

But Seeds of Peace will host their International Camp in a couple weeks, where Israeli and Palestinian teens will come together to begin what organizers and participants hope will be a step in the right direction, toward peace in the region.

Camp Director Leslie Lewin joins Take Two from the camp to talk about the program and the teens involved.
