International Palestinian Youth League (IPYL) is an independent non-governmental organisation based in Hebron. The IPYL was founded in May 1997 by a group of young Palestinians with the vision of empowering youth in order to confront the various economic, social and political challenges facing Palestine in the context of the on-going Israeli occupation of the West Bank.
The reality of Palestinian youth is different from any other place:
- Israeli occupation is leaving deep marks on the Palestinian youth’s attitude and aspirations.
- Palestinian youth participation in public life is very limited and never on a decision making level.
- Uncertainness about the future perspectives and hopelessness reinforce the feeling of alienation, impotence and confusion among youth.
- To encourage young people to:
- Have an active community involvement.
- Understand the importance of democracy, human rights principles and international humanitarian laws.
- Develop a spirit of independence and creativity.
- Recognize and respect cultural diversity.
- Work with young people in the neighboring countries to achieve a real peace.
- To promote an end to discrimination and the respect of diversities.
- To assist Palestinian society’s underprivileged & marginalize sectors.
- To encourage equal opportunities in all social sectors, stressing liberal values, democratic principles, intercultural learning and community development.
- Youth Leadership and Capacity Building Initiatives.
- Voluntary Work Programs.
- Intercultural Exchange and Twinning’s.
- International Workcamps.
- Cultural Activities and study trips.
- Youth Information Center.
- Language Courses.
- Studies and Researches.
