Promoting the participation of youth in social and political processes is an essential part of FES activities in Jordan. Since 2010, FES has been educating young people on political, social and economic challenges faced by their country and the region, and training them to become active members of society. The primary aim of the Young Leaders program is to create a space for young people in Jordan to learn skills, exchange their views and develop ideas – hence building a network of well-trained youth wishing to be socially and politically active. Through this project, FES Amman has managed to establish a youth network of nearly 450 young people from all over Jordan to this day.  

FES Amman office shall announce the application date for the YOUNG LEADERS PROGRAM through its website and Facebook page in December of each year.
