About Arab Youth Volunteering for a Better Future


The Arab Youth Volunteering for a Better Future project is an initiative led by the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme, in line with regional strategies of the United Nations (UN) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The project supports the UN Secretary General’s Five Year Action Agenda, in which he highlights the importance of working with and for young people as a priority.


This regional initiative harnesses the power and energy of youth through volunteerism, drawing on the inherent core values of self-help, solidarity and social cohesion. The project seeks to strengthen the infrastructure necessary to build the skills and capacities of youth in the region, and enhance their social inclusion and active participation in the development of their countries. The project is currently implemented in: Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Yemen.
