In Lebanon, the Leadership, Empowerment and Awareness Programme LEAP is an opportunity for young people who have the will, courage, and persistence to stand up in a decision-making position. It implements social policy initiatives at the national and regional levels. The programme is a space where participants translate the themes and content of their discussions into their respective social and professional environments and are encouraged to form advocacy groups to enable their ideas to influence public opinion and major policy decisions. It is designed to support young people so that they can gain the trust and support of large segments of the community. LEAP sees itself as a space in which socio-political youth are guided to see themselves as active members of society; to find their own role and actively participate in the socio-political life of their country and region.
