Our mission is to provide young people a voice through education, debate and by raising their awarenessabout worldwide issues.

IDEA MENA has three main programmatic lines:

I. Shaping Policy

IDEA MENA strives to empower active youth with the adequate skills and knowledge to become effectively involved in decision-making processes in their communities and countries. This objective has translated in programs aiming to introduce active youth to the policy process and policy drafting, and to build the capacity of youth organizations and CSOs in general to influence policy.

By introducing them to debate-related skills (critical thinking, public speaking, etc.) in informal settings, and by organizing events that facilitate dialogue between them and the different actors that affect their daily lives (including local authorities, police, educational institutions, etc.), we help them acquire little by little the skills they need in order to become outspoken leaders who are capable of achieving positive impact in their communities.
