Change works with 75 Palestinian refugees from Syria and Syrian refugees currently in grade 12, working to unlock potential and support them through the door to higher education successfully. Over the course of two semesters, the Change students engage in intensive English courses, university counseling and assistance with university applications. Furthermore, participants receive soft skills training aimed at developing analytical and creative thinking skills as well as practical skills valuable in today’s job market yet too often missing from school and university curricula. Through the Change program, ULYP empowers participants to make a contribution to the development of their communities and Lebanon as a whole. The program’s slogan says it all: Change starts with education.
Change is in partnership with The Asfari Foundation.
