Youth Ages 16-18

Change remains active for the second year and works with youth in or around the areas of Mount Lebanon, Saida and Beirut. Change is true to its motto ‘change starts with education,’ and through intensive sessions for enhancing English and Life Skills, students build a strong skillset for a better future. Change is in partnership with the Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair Refugee Education Fund.

#Respect is back this year and aims to transform marginalized youth into active agents of positive and sustainable change, embodying, promoting and leading intercultural dialogue. #Respect re-imagines displaced youth as a potential, not a burden. The image of this population portrayed in the media is synonymous with war, oppression and suffering, leaving the truth about potential, abilities and respect absent from this picture. #Respect changes the image of this youth BY this youth. #Respect is supported by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI).

UPC, the ULYP University Prep Course, is in motion working closely with current UNRWA 11th graders who are performing well at school. They are offered SAT prep courses and receive college counseling sessions to help them get ready for university applications and acceptances. UPC is funded by various donors.

Target around 500 youth
