Youth Leadership Program (YLP)
In recognition of the vital role youth play in achieving development goals, UNDP Regional Bureau for Arab State RBAS launched the Youth Leadership Programme (YLP) in 2015.
INJAZ Lebanon joined the YLP project in 2018 as one of the youth serving partners handling the training of selected youth.
During 2020, 226 youth have joined YLP6 with INJAZ Lebanon and developed their innovative ideas. A total of 15 projects and 89 participants were selected to participate in the YLP national competition to pitch their ideas.
YLP aims to empower change-makers and support the young women and men to design and implement innovative, impactful, and sustainable development solutions, whether in the form of social enterprises, nonprofits, NGOs, initiatives, or campaigns. The programme’s specific objectives are to:
- Promote and support innovative thinking and leadership among youth;
- Accelerate implementation of pioneering solutions for sustainable development;
- Build networks of young men and women who are able to create change and have a positive sustainable impact in their communities, countries, and region;
- Showcase the achievements of young men and women as change-makers in their communities.
