The YLP Advisory Board is a group of carefully selected YLP Alumni that will be accompanying the YLP Team in the upcoming activities. The Board Members were selected from different Lebanese regions as they will be representing their regions in the Board Meetings.
They are the youth focal points of each of their regions and will tend to the needs of their Youth and report back to us so that we can better understand and serve the largely spread-out Youth across Lebanon from YLP participants. These young leaders will be assisting the UNDP’s YLP to collect data and conduct assessments, as well as organize specific oriented workshops and trainings to their regions, all based on the Youth’s needs and desires.
After having reviewed the multiple applications received for the Advisory Board Members 2021 for YLP Alumni, we have selected a total of 15 members that will be representing the youth from all over Lebanon. The members cover all areas of Lebanon, from Beirut, to Mount Lebanon, South Lebanon, North Lebanon, and Beqaa. These members have been extremely helpful with their enthusiastic drive, as they have been the focal points of several projects, initiatives, and workshops!
And after virtually meeting for almost 1 year, we finally got to meet all the YLP Advisory Board Members face to face in July 2021. The whole team was very excited to meet each other and exchange ideas and projects, it was a very fruitful get-together!
Furthermore, two activities were held for the Advisory Board to exchange ideas for the upcoming YLP and to discuss the feedback about the previous one and how to further improve it to tend to the young change-makers’ needs.
The YLP Advisory Board Members for 2021-2022 are: Bahaa Hajir, Crystel Hajjar, Gabby Fraidy, Jad Karam, Jennifer Nammoura, Jihane Charafeldine, Karen Takkouche, Laeticia Kamel, Lama Mahmoud, Mohamad Al Arnaout, Mohamad Sharif, Paula Bassil, Rayan Mahfouz, Tala Badawi, Yasmine Naji.
