Youth Organizing Program

Youth Organizing is the core program of Ruwwad Palestine, with a focus on promoting the civic engagement of youths in their villages and communities, and on building supportive networks across all five villages.

Initially, 30 scholarships were awarded to students from Budrus, following which more scholars were recruited from the other four villages, raising the total number of scholarship to 89. The scholars, of course, commit to four hours of community service per week, while also benefitting from the Enrichment Program through the weekly Cultural Dardashat and the Business skills enhancement workshops that span communication, team building, presentation, and time management.

Partnerships with a number of educational and educational support institutions were established to further support the work with the scholars, including Al Qattan Center for Educational Development, Tamer Center for Civic Education, the Ministry of Education and Birzeit University.
