Palestine Youth Development Department and Al-Quds University

Palestine; Youth; Disability

The main goal of the Youth Development Department is to support and improve the capacities of local youth institutions in Jerusalem by providing them with the resources and contacts necessary to establish youth exchange and enrichment programs. Volunteers will be supporting this work through developing workshops and resources and to increase awareness of the organisation.

As the only Palestinian University in Jerusalem, Al Quds empowers Palestinian youth through education, instilling a spirit of innovation, freedom of expression and freedom of thought. Our ICS volunteers support this work by providing workshops and networks to broaden the learning of Al Quds students, encouraging them to engage with new cultures, languages, and exciting global opportunities.
