At CYEE, we believe that young Palestinians are best placed to protect their rights and play meaningful roles within decision-making processes when they are empowered in the psychosocial and economic spheres. CYEE envisages a free Palestine in which youth are actors of change, take responsibility for their own lives and well-being, and benefit from equal opportunities, no matter their gender. Through its work, the CYEE seeks to create a safe and inspiring environment for Palestinian youth to be aware of their role in society and look to the future with an optimistic vision.
CYEE invests in youth and women’s socio-economic development through collaborative efforts between educational institutions, the private sector, the government and the Palestinian community as a whole. We work on enhancing youth personal and professional capabilities, while addressing their main barriers to employment. We aim to increase their participation rates in the labor market and subsequently expand their horizons.
