Youth Leadership Training Camp

Locations(s): Seru
Governorate(s):
Dates(s): May 2007
Participants: 60 students

60 chosen youth from 12 youth centers throughout Jordan attended this year’s 3-day Youth Leadership Traning Camp at Seru, Jordan. Located near Al Salt, the facility provided an excellent location for the youth leaders to learn leadership and facilitating skills, and how to use them in leading a new Teambuilding and Drama program at their individual centers. The youth took part in numerous challenges and games. Each activity was followed by a discussion about lessons learned and their relevance to real-life situations. We used grant money for translation during the camp and to print English and Arabic manuals. Summer youth leaders and their PCVs will conduct follow-up Teambuilding and Drama workshops at their youth centers. Building on last year’s inaugural leadership camp, this year’s camp was a huge success and the YD PCVs in Jordan are looking forward to more such camps in the near future. I would like to thank FOJ for their support of this project.
