Organization Description
The Center was established in June 2011 as a youth initiative to offer educational services and improve language skills of the Hebron community, especially in conversational English usage. Excellence Center for Education and Training Services works to further educate Hebron community members by offering unique training courses. These courses are designed to equip participating students with the skills necessary to succeed in the business world and to improve their overall quality of life. Lessons in conversational English, leadership and other foreign languages are offered year round.

At the Excellence Center we challenge our students to work hard in order to succeed. Trained Palestinian instructors who have received formal training and education in their respective fields, international teachers, interns and volunteers teach our foreign language courses, allowing students to hear the natural and native pronunciations of words. Students develop their listening, and conversational skills, while their cultural knowledge is expanded. The Excellence Center is fully licensed by the Palestinian Ministry of Education and each student receives a certificate of completion at the end of his or her course.

The center is located on Ein Sara Street, the central street in Hebron, just in front of the Al Hussain Secondary School and Al Hussain stadium, the main soccer stadium in Hebron. This central location provides people from all over the city a convenient location to receive quality training. The Excellence Center is fully equipped with high-speed wireless Internet, three classrooms, computers and a big kitchen. The Center’s convenient location makes it easy for international volunteers and interns to access shops, restaurants, ATMs, and historical sites without difficulty.

The International Programs :

1. Volunteer in Palestine:

The Volunteer in Palestine program is designed for students and people who do not possess experience in teaching English as EFL (English as a Foreign Language). All majors and nationalities are welcome to apply for the program. During the last four years, the Excellence Center has hosted more than 80 international interns and volunteers from every corner of the world.

Excellence Center's programs are multifaceted and growing. There are many opportunities for volunteers to make a crucial difference. Volunteers can play an important role in contributing to the local community's wellbeing and in building bonds of understanding. Many opportunities are offered on projects supporting the education and focusing on community development.

2. Teach English, Study Arabic Program (TESA) :

The 2015 TESA "Teach English, Speak Arabic" Program is a singular opportunity for students searching to make a unique difference in their lives and the lives of others. While interns teach English to Palestinians, they are also involved in community development activities that are organized by the Excellence Center.

Additionally, international interns study the Arabic language with Palestinian teachers for three hours a week. Language studies include study of the Palestinian dialect and Modern Standard Arabic. The TESA program offers international interns two different types of positions year round. The first internship is suitable for people who have skills to teach English comprehensively to Palestinian youth, children, and adults. A "Teaching Assistant" position is designed for students and people who do not possess experience in teaching English as EFL (English as a Foreign Language).
