On Sunday, March 27, 2011, eight stellar TYO volunteers, with a few American interns and staff members in tow, took their expertise on the road to Tulkarm. Arriving at the Rosy Palestine Kindergarten after lunch, the volunteers implemented two-hours of enriching field day activities including sports, arts, parachute games and face-painting. This site visit marks the second time this session that the TYO Volunteer Program has run activities out in the local community. Last week, a group of volunteers along with Volunteer Coordinator Ahmad led a field day at Askar refugee camp. Check out more photos from the day on TYO’s Facebook page.

The cheers and laughter could be heard throughout the neighborhood last Wednesday when more than 100 children took part in an Open Day at the TYO center. That day, TYO Core Program kids took a break from their normal classes to play games, create art, and watch a clown performance.
Each semester, TYO schedules “open days” both as a treat for the kids and as a way to introduce TYO to other Nablus community groups. This time, 30 children from AMRA organization, an NGO specializing in IT training in Nablus, joined in the fun. In this way, open days are an important way for core program participants to share what they’ve learned at TYO with kids from other organizations and neighborhoods while hopefully making some new friends along the way!
The day’s events were coordinated by TYO Sports teacher, Haitham Okeh, and included many activities learned from Right to Play trainings. Teams of kids, supervised by TYO youth volunteers, rotated through eight relay race stations. They sprinted around cones; hopped on balls; bowled; and tossed beanbags into rings. The competition was stiff, but win or loose everyone enjoyed cheering and playing throughout the afternoon.
