Hannah Weitzer : Program Director

Hannah has over a decade of experience working with grassroots and international NGOs, focusing on education and conflict resolution programming, including five years with local, bi-national Palestinian-Israeli nonprofit organizations. She holds a master’s degree in International Education Development from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education and a BA in Middle East Studies from Brown University. 

Hannah is now Program Director at GNG, where she develops and implements GNG’s civic engagement programs and partnerships in Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Middle East, and beyond. She is passionate about providing opportunities for young people to learn about each other and with each other, changing the way they see themselves and the world, and creating spaces for them to be agents of change
in their local and global communities.

Outside of the office, you might find her biking-commuting over the Brooklyn Bridge, practicing her Arabic in Amman, or scarf shopping in Kabul.
