The Youth Program is based on educating Palestinian youth to enhance their role in participating in the development of their societies based on Catholic social teachings through training volunteers, implementing purposeful activities that serve the poor, including the elderly, orphans and persons with disabilities, and participating in advocacy campaigns on several issues of concern to Palestinian society.
The majority of the Palestinian population is under 18 years old. It is our mission at Caritas to help young people to develop their sense of responsibility through community projects and social activities.
The Caritas Youth Volunteers Programme is present in 13 different cities and villages in the West Bank. Activities include assistance to isolated elderly persons, home improvement for poor families, Palestinian culture days and capacity building workshops.
