Youth Local Councils: Promoting Democratic Participation Among Youth in Palestine (video)

“Democracy is not something that is learned, but rather something that is practiced.” Global Communities Palestine Country Director Lana Abu-Hijleh talks about the Youth Local Council (YLC) initiative and how it is providing a platform for youth to voice their opinions, support local government and prepare themselves to become leaders in their communities. YLCs have been set up throughout the West Bank with support from USAID West Bank/Gaza under the Local Government and Infrastructure program.
