As a local non-governmental Palestinian organization, Sharek Youth Forum seeks to contribute to the development of youth through designing, supporting, and implementing youth initiatives, programmes and projects in Palestine. The organization strives to get the voice of youth heard, and acts as a platform for advocacy on political, economic, social, and cultural youth issues. The organization raises awareness on issues affecting youth in Palestine both locally and internationally through partnering with stakeholders, private and public-sectors, civil society organizations, and to provide a wider range of opportunities for youth.
Sharek Youth Forum envisions a Palestine where youth have the opportunities to fulfill their potential as leaders in state-building and as active participants in the political, economic, social and cultural life in Palestine. By building the capacities of Palestinian youth, they can tackle youth issues more effectively.
