Welcome to the PAYCE Podcast page. Learn more about the Palestinian American Youth Civic Engagement (PAYCE) initiative on this website.


From 2017-2019, Palestinian American Youth Civic Engagement (PAYCE) brought together Palestinian and American university students in a shared curriculum to inspire productive, effective, and positive civic engagement.  Housed at Al-Quds University, PAYCE included students from Palestinian programs Al-Quds Bard College, Al-Quds University American Studies, and An-Najah National University. United States campuses included Drake UniversityFlorida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), University of Hartford, and University of New Hampshire – Manchester.  PAYCE was funded by The Stevens Initiative, which paid all program-related expenses for the participants.
