On Saturday November 4, The Freedom Theatre, for the first time, hosted a Youth Forum in partnership with the Community Development Step in Arrabeh village, the Pioneers for Yabad Group and the Taa’yush Charity Association in Zebabdeh village.
The forum provided a platform for young people to share their experiences of youth work with centres in and around the wider Jenin area. It presented various ideas and interventions of the role local councils play in supporting youth work, reviewing the role and experiences of several institutions and youth centres, the role of youth in national policy and the national youth act promoting youth participation to communicate the Palestinian National Vision.
The role of women in society was also discussed and presented by Samar Salahaddin, the first female mayor in Palestine, who shared her personal experience within the youth and women’s movement; she hopes to reach the wider youth community with her new mayoral position and strengthen the women’s movement across Palestine.
Our gratitude to everyone involved! The Freedom Theatre is proud to support the voices of Palestinian youth to create a better and more integrated society.
