Gisha


Israel

Intense and daily travel restrictions imposed by Israel since its occupation of Gaza and the West Bank have stunted the ability of 3.4 million Palestinians to achieve education training and economic development particularly in Gaza. Each year millions of dollars invested in Palestinian development projects are wasted because of travel restrictions that prevent people from accessing them. Gisha promotes the long term development of Palestinian society by changing Israeli policies to facilitate the free movement of people and goods necessary to invest in human and economic resources. Gisha which in Hebrew means access brings the claims and narratives of Palestinian institutions and individuals before Israeli courts (through litigation) and before Israeli public opinion (through public information) to demonstrate the common Israeli Palestinian interest in allowing young people to develop the skills they need to build a peaceful prosperous society.

U.S. Public Service Academy


United States of America

America faces a massive and growing shortage of public servants as Baby Boomers retire more than ninety percent of federal civil service leadership is eligible to retire in the next decade and there are already shortages in critical public service jobs at all levels of society. Top students are increasingly less likely to pursue public service careers due to mounting college debts and a culture that belittles public sector work. Despite this looming crisis America has no national college devoted to developing civilian leaders in contrast to the five military service academies we offer future military leaders. Modeled on the nation's five existing military academies the U.S. Public Service Academy offers a comprehensive undergraduate curriculum and a five year post graduation service requirement. The Academy is building a core of civilian leaders who have the character training and experience necessary to serve the nation effectively and address critical needs in education health care emergency response and other essential fields. At capacity the Academy provides a service oriented leadership focused education to 5100 undergraduate students.
