Programs

Program: Project Interchange (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
July 2013)

Budget:
$513,846
Category:
International, Foreign Affairs & National Security
Population Served:
Adults

Program Description:

Project Interchange develops and runs intensive weeklong educational programs in Israel for influential figures from the United States and around the world. These programs allow participants to explore the complex issues facing Israel in a transparent, balanced, and interactive manner.  By building and maintaining an informed leadership among key constituencies – including governmental officials, ethnic and religious figures, industry leaders, journalists and university presidents – PI helps to secure the support of those in positions to enhance relations between Israel and other nations, counter biased impressions and support favorable public policies.

Program Long-Term Success:

Since its inception, Project Interchange has educated over 5,300 influential figures from more than 60 countries about Israel and the Middle East. The seminars are credited with cultivating deep and meaningful understanding of Israel in the participants.

Program Short-Term Success:

Introducing influential leaders from around the world to Israel and knowing that they will be vocal advocates and spokespeople for the Jewish state upon their return home.

Program Success Monitored by:

Participants are required to complete evaluation forms which ask about each presentor and site visited. Staff members involved with the planning, implementation, and hosting of each seminar complete evaluation forms. Through post-program activities (conference calls, local program activities, social networking opportunities, etc.) PI monitors speeches, articles and blogs prepared by project alumni.

Program Success Examples:

a. Dr. Robert A. Corrigan, president of San Francisco State University and a PI alumnus, issued a statement expressing concern over an on-campus event which “called for an academic and cultural boycott of one nation, Israel.” Corrigan states, “An academic boycott is a wrongheaded tactic that diminishes any institution that would pursue it. It is antithetical to this University’s values of inclusion and mutual respect.” Corrigan visited Israel twice with Project Interchange, first in 1993 as a part of a leadership delegation from Northern California, and again in 2008 on a University Presidents seminar. b. Israel Gateway reports that, “Israel has signed a memorandum of understanding with the state of New York on industrial cooperation in the area of research & development. The cooperation agreement was signed by New York’s David Paterson and Israel’s Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer.” Governor Paterson traveled to Israel with Project Interchange in 2007 as Lt. Governor of New York State. c. Mats Skogkär, a Swedish editorial writer, discusses the “series of bizarre and unfounded allegations about the Israeli Defense Forces” made by Swedish tabloid, Aftonbladet. Skogkär visited Israel with Project Interchange in February 2008 as part of a delegation from Scandinavia.

Program Description:

The Latino and Latin American Institute systematically builds and sustains relationships that help protect and strengthen Jewish communities in Latin America, secure support for Israel throughout the hemisphere, and foster favorable political alliances in the United States. To accomplish these goals, the Institute engages the Latino community in the United States and the governments of Latin America to address both their separate and intersecting issues, and to produce reciprocal appreciation for AJC’s concerns. This approach integrates the agency’s remarkable capacity to promote positive change at home and abroad through sophisticated interethnic and interreligious outreach and international diplomacy.

Program Long-Term Success:

AJC is the only organization that has established strategic, long-term relations with both the political and economic power bases in Latin America and among Latino elites in the U.S. Enhancing relationships with these critical cohorts in both Latin America and the U.S. is imperative to attain and cultivate support for Israel and America’s position on Israel.

Program Short-Term Success:

Program Success Monitored by:

AJC's executive staff

Program Success Examples:

(1) the Institute’s director testified before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs -- the sole voice on behalf the Jewish community -- that Iran's expanding ties to countries in the Western Hemisphere poses a threat to all nations in the region including the United States. In testimony before members of three House Foreign Affairs subcommittees, she explained that Venezuela is the gateway to heightened Iranian influence on other countries in Latin America. (2) More than 30 AJC and Dominican-American top leaders met with H.E. Leonel Fernandez, President of the Dominican Republic, at AJC headquarters. AJC Executive Director David Harris expressed the organization’s appreciation for the excellent ties between the Dominican Republic, the United States, and Israel, and for the important role played by the Caribbean country in rescuing almost 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust. (President Fernandez had been in Israel in July 2009, accompanied by a delegation of 30 diplomats and businessmen, to discuss ways the two countries can increase trade and forge a strategic relationshithe Latino and Latin American Institute has worked with the American Dominican community and contacts in the Dominican Republic to expand and promote the conversation about increased trade with Israel. Most recently, the Institute has been working with its Dominican partners to bring aid to Haiti.
