About the program/Scholarship:
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and INJAZin Jordan invite Jordanian youth to participate in the “A National Volunteer Initiative for Youth” to promote and spread the volunteering culture in the Jordanian society. The initiative motivates young people of all ages and from all places to contribute to building this culture with key partnerships of the public, private and civil society organizations. It is launched as part of a national campaign across the Kingdom to highlighting the role of youth as an integral part of volunteering. It will provide youth who is the largest segment of the Jordanian society with various opportunities to demonstrate their potential and build their capacity and expertise believing that it will bring positive outcomes on the community in return.
The initiative works with various sectors to institutionalize volunteering and build on what has been achieved in this field at the national level, as well as open a wide range of national partnerships to provide as many volunteer opportunities as possible. The national initiative has adopted the slogan “Volunteer and Build a Generation’s Culture” with the belief that the values of volunteering are important to build an empowered generation capable of transforming the challenges into opportunities through the establishment of innovative community initiatives that contribute to solving these challenges. All this increases the opportunity of young people entering the labor market, as the initiative continues to expand through arranging a range of events and campaigns on the media to reach different people of society.
Applicants must be residents of Jordan and must be interested in developing themselves and their skills as well as making positive changes in their communities through volunteering.
- Successful applicants will be able to participate in many events organized by UNICEF and INJAZ as part of their national initiative, as well as being given the opportunity to gain some personal and professional skills through interaction with people from different backgrounds.
