NYSW 2019 Training


To teachers, activity directors, school administrators, and leaders of youth organizations,

We invite you to join us in engaging youth in Lebanon, ages 5-25, in planning and implementing sustainable service projects in your local communities and elsewhere in Lebanon for National Youth Service Week 2019 (April 6-14). Our campaign seeks to empower youth and give them the opportunity to make a positive difference in their society. Our approach is to provide free training to adult and youth leaders of groups and classes on:

  • How to Plan and Implement a Project
  • What is Sustainable Service
  • How to Participate in National Youth Service Week

We provide certificates to trainees who register in advance and attend the full training session.

You can learn more at www.nysw-lebanon.org/?q=nysw or in Arabic, www.nysw-lebanon.org/?q=ar/nysw. We will be providing training workshops in different areas of Lebanon between now and March 4th to give the youth time to plan their projects before the Pre-Project Form is due (March 25th).

Attending a training session is encouraged, but not required to participate in National Youth Service Week. For information and requirements for participation, download the Schedule and Participation Guide in Arabic or English. The links are at the bottom of the page www.nysw-lebanon.org/?q=nysw
