Youth Democratic Citizenship

This program targets the feeling of helplessness among Palestinain youth in order to give a platform for them to be empowered and regain their confidence in themselves as they do in their own generation.

Youth can be the power of lobbying to address issues that range from local social services to national issues on poverty, unemployment, democracy, national concerns and even politics.

Training in the fields of civics, leadership Lobbying and advocacy, is a must and it definitely gives the tools needed for better influence and greater impact. It is educating the Palestinian youth in order to serve their national aspiration of independence and freedom.

Category: Youth Democratic Citizenship
Created: 15 July 2014

In July 2014, the JAI has arranged training for more than 20 young males and females from the Bethlehem area, as part of its Democratic Citizenship project.

The training included the concepts of citizenship and national affiliation, advocacy and lobbying, and communication skills, after which the trainees have developed an initiative to encourage and enhance citizenship among various Palestinian sectors through voluntary work and services.

It worths mentioning that the Democratic Citizenship project aims at raising the voice of Palestinian youth to become active social actors and influential on decision making towards positive social change.
