Overview

Self-reported by organization

WHY WE DO IT
Misinformation kills.

Even though information is more accessible today than at any other time in our history, there is a lack of motivation to learn – especially among college students and young adults. Enemies of America, Israel, and of peace have poured millions of dollars into PR campaigns to spread inaccurate information and foster hatred here in the United States. It is imperative that this misinformation is countered with truth for future generations to understand the genuine partners of peace.

Program 1

Membership "Boot Camp" Training Program

BOOT CAMP
Our intensive 10-week membership training program carefully selects 20 volunteers and trains them on the history of Israel, Judaism, Islam, Christianity, current events and the practical skills they need to advocate to their peers.

Led by Middle East experts, political pollsters and Special Forces soldiers, Fuel For Truth Boot Camp is the flagship program that invests highly in future advocates and leaders of the community.

Volunteers that successfully complete the Boot Camp program can assume leadership positions in Fuel For Truth and have an immediate impact on the direction of the organization as well as the greater community.

STATEMENT FROM THE Chairman

"RESULTS & RETURN ON INVESTMENT
We are clearly reconnecting disconnected Americans with Israel, and that may well be the first step to reconnecting them on other levels as well.

We have developed an organization with nine different committees, 42 top-level volunteer managers, and 200-plus volunteers. Fuel For Truth is committed to always keeping the fire and vibrancy that comes from being an organization run by young leaders for young leaders.

And we’re just getting started."
