Young Leaders of Change
Young Leaders of Change gives thirty high school students the opportunity to discover their potential and use the correct tools to trigger the change towards a better community. Helping these students to be aware of their community needs engages them with a sense of responsibility to build a stronger tomorrow with the rest of the team members that they will be working with. Hence here comes the importance of giving students the necessary capacity building trainings to assess, plan, execute, and present feasible projects.
Young Leaders of Change project adheres to Youth Engagement and Capacity Building themes. Coaches who will be from Mount Lebanon II chapter steering committee and founding members will be receiving training in January hosted by Khota Ashabab office in Aley so they themselves then train high school students in three schools on how to assess community needs, work as a team, write a project proposal, execute it and present it within a timeframe of three months and a half keeping in mind that each school will get a mini grant of $150. Needless to say, those students will be encouraged to come up with their own fundraising activities to cover additional expenses for their project. Within that three months and a half duration, students will get to know each other in a cultural day where they will be visiting Beiteddine castle in Shouf area and get training at the American Center in Baakline on how to pitch their projects using video making and presentations. Senior Students, including an LSAC alumnus, from the faculty of Information and Communication in Antonine University, will be responsible for conducting this training at the American Center.
The final event which will be taking place in a university will aim at gathering Mount Lebanon II alumni to involve them in the upcoming events of the chapter from one side and will serve as opportunity for the students to pitch their projects in front of notable alumni jury and get rewards and certificates.
