arcenciel Summer awareness program is a volunteer program specifically designed for high school students seeking an exciting opportunity in Lebanon. Our culturally rich educational program is designed to open each participant’s eyes to the inner workings of a social enterprise, giving them the opportunity to actively participate in on-going projects, and to forge meaningful connections with underserved and vulnerable communities in Lebanon. Through guided group sessions, students openly discuss their new experiences and, along with their peers, develop ideas and question their surroundings.
