YLC Completes Skill-Based Trainings with YALLA Participants

The Youth Leadership Committee (YLC) is a group of eight university students who are active citizens of Nablus working to build work-related and life skills, while increasing their role in the community. Having completed 50 hours of intensive, skill-based training led by local experts, YLC members applied their newly acquired leadership, communications, reporting, and management skills to evaluate a call for applications for youth-identified community initiatives. Currently they are reviewing and fine-tuning eight initiatives submitted by 13 local youth, or participants of Youth Action Local Leadership Alliance (YALLA). YALLA is a youth-led civic engagement program – supported by the US State Department’s Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) – that targets youth aged 12-21.The YLC will assist in selecting three of these initiatives to be funded, and devise implementation, monitoring and evaluation plans for each, engaging applicants and other TYO volunteers throughout the process.
