The BA has relaunched the Youth for Change Program in its fourth phase, under the title “ICT: Supporting Leaders of the Future”, after the program’s success in its first three phases. This phase is executed in cooperation with the TakingITGlobal organization and through local coordinators and some local organizations in the Middle East and North Africa. It includes 10 Arab countries, namely Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Saudi Arabia, and UAE.
This phase of the program aims to identify Arab youths who are talented in the field of ICT in order to provide them with the opportunity to develop themselves, and it aims to create an active network to gather those youths and nurture their talents. It also seeks to support youths and encourage them to take the initiative and inspire positive change in their communities through implementing their development projects. The program offers a range of mini-grants to the winners to execute their presented projects and to help them take the initiative to positively change their communities.
