Youth Leadership Skills and Economic Empowerment Amidst the COVID Crisis


The aim of the intervention was to offer a comprehensive support package for small project developments and implementation plans for participating youth. They were encouraged to develop initiatives that would help their communities in the COVID-19 crisis.

The strategy was built on provision of training and capacity building, followed by youth projects supported with small grants, and afterwards sustaining the engagement.

Twenty young people (aged 15-24 years) from five impoverished regions of the country participated in the initiative.

The initiative was managed by Dar Abu Abdallah (DAA), a local non-governmental organization, and supported by UNICEF Jordan.
