Phase 3

Registration Date: Not determined

Youth for Change phase III succeeded in reaching out and supporting hundreds of Arab youth in the different targeted Arab countries:

  • 22 youth have been chosen as focal points to coordinate and promote the program activities in their countries as well as 5Advisors to join the phase III advisory board.
  • 24 host organizations supported and promoted the program. This promotion along with TIG and BA networks made it possible for over 400 youth to participate in the knowledge sharing events, 200 to participate in the live chats and proposal writing sessions.
  • We received 350 project applications for the mini-grants of which 42 were selected to receive the program mini-grants. However due to circumstances related to the Arab spring, only 26 received them and implemented their projects.
  • 26 winners were invited to Bibliotheca Alexandrina in December 2011 to present their projects and participate in capacity building sessions. 10 coordinators joined them to evaluate their projects.
  • Youth for Change website has attracted till now 17,000 visitors from 169 countries. Social media accounts were created in phase III ( Twitter has 304 followers, Facebook group has 7,000 members and Facebook page has 1095 members, Flickr has 370 photos uploaded, Youtube has 600 views).
  • The number of TIG members from the MENA region increased from 6,200 - 8,000, which is an increase of 1,800, over the course of the program. These new members have been actively contributing to the different sections of TIG including the discussion boards, blogs, Panorama and Global Gallery sections.
