Have you ever wanted to visit the “Little America” of the Middle East? During the summer of 2017, Turning Point USA is partnering with Passages to offer a highly-subsidized trip to Israel for top conservative activists.
Turning Point USA is offering top activists and student leaders an opportunity to join one of our partner organizations, Passages, on their incredible trip to the most free country in the Middle East, and America’s greatest ally in the region – Israel. This unique opportunity, coming during the summer of 2017, will be a fantastic chance for TPUSA leaders to network and learn from some key influential leaders in the region. The trip is being led by Passages, an excellent organization that takes Christian student leaders to explore the foundations of their faith and the free market marvel of the Middle East.
