Young Leaders Programme Palestine

In Palestine, the aim of the Young Leaders Programme is to support and foster a generation of empowered young people with visionary and progressive ideals that can take on the challenges of their future. The programme is implemented in cooperation with the Women’s Affairs Technical Committee (WACT) in the West Bank and Save Youth’s Future Society in the Gaza Strip. While promoting our shared values, such as social democracy, socio-economic and gender justice and equality across an intersectional society, the programme targets Palestinian youth who are keen to become actively involved in the political opinion-making and decision-taking process in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The Young Leaders’ Programme comprises personal skills trainings, methodological trainings, policy trainings, and group activities. Each cycle, one group of young people in the West Bank and one in the Gaza Strip is selected, to participate in the programme.
