|Youth Civil Society Leaders|
In January 2008, LTA launched the Youth Civil Society Leaders (YCSL) project in partnership with the International Research and Exchange Board (IREX), as part of it Youth against Corruption program.
The program consists of four mutually reinforcing objectives:
• Build the capacity of youth civil society leaders in advocacy and anti-corruption techniques;
• Identify issue-based projects that bridge sectarian divides;
• Implement community-driven youth projects that improve government transparency and accountability; and
• Form a nation-wide youth coalition called Lebanese Youth against Corruption.
Targeted training created a select group of more than 500 youth leaders, among which 325 received 88 hours of issue-based training. Beneficiaries come from eight sensitive Lebanese areas, and are capable of mobilizing local communities to address poor governance. The regions covered by the project are: East Baalbek; Bekaa region (near Deir el Ahmar); Southern Borders; Jezzine, East Saida, and Saida; Tripoli-Bab el Tebaneh (North); Southern and Southeastern suburbs of Beirut; and South Mount Lebanon.
Youth involved in the project have been receiving thematic and technical training on:
• Transparency and Accountability
• Good Governance
• Conflict Resolution
• Proposal writing and budgeting
• Project management
This dynamic framework of youth leaders will consolidate their resources in a nation-wide youth coalition entitled the Lebanese Youth Coalition Against Corruption (LYCAC) that was launched on May 9, 2009.
