AFSC supports multiple initiatives in Jordan. We focus on enhancing civic engagement, providing platforms and resources for the support and implementation of community-led initiatives.

Our Shabab (Youth in Arabic) civic engagement program was launched in 2020 with the goal of improving active participation of Syrian and Jordanian adolescents and youth in Jordan. Participants engage in a year-long learning journey that is aimed to improve their civic engagement skills and their participation in decision-making procedures around key causes in their communities.
