The Zahi Khouri Fellowship Program provides Palestinian American students and graduates the experience of professional development in Palestine in the fields of education, youth/female empowerment and economic development based on a psychosocial and multigenerational approach. These talented and motivated Palestinian Americans to contribute to and learn from the next generation of Palestinians living in the most underprivileged areas of Nablus.

-Educational programming for children and women as part of TYO’s Core Child Program and The Women’s Group

-Professional competency courses at An-Najah National University

-Curriculum development

-The opportunity to working alongside TYO’s women entrepreneurs

This Fellowship has been established and generously funded by Mr. Zahi Khouri. Mr Khouri is a prominent business and civic leader in Palestine, the US, and beyond. He is currently the CEO of the National Beverage Company, sole distributors of Coca Cola, and Chairman of Partners for a New Beginning Palestine, established by the Aspen Institute.
