Why young people?

Before the outbreak of the conflict, Syria was home to one of the youngest populations in the world. About a third of the Syrian population is between 10 and 24 years old. As the Syrian conflict enters its eleventh year, its impact on adolescents, youth, and women has been particularly devastating. Rather than entering a transitional age full of learning, exploration, dreams, and ambitions, these groups have been constantly exposed to a brutal war, experiencing untold suffering through displacement and ongoing conflict, affecting their present and their future. However, these young people will be responsible for rebuilding the country. Therefore, SYA believes that their empowerment and their involvement at various levels are necessary for Syria's social, political, and economic stability, its future, and its scientific development, which will support the Syrians' faith in their homeland and turn it into an attractive place for its children, which may contribute to spreading peace and the return of those who left Syria to it to be part of its renaissance at all levels. This may not only be reflected in the Syrian geography but in the entire region.

Our Vision

We aim to organize, mobilize Syrian youth, develop their skills, and secure their basic needs of education, employment, and development to influence and participate in the Syrian peace process in the short term and mobilize support for peace and the reconstruction of Syria in the long term. We aim to achieve effective and sustainable development in society through qualified cadres and effective partnerships that work to professionally implement several programs and projects based on transparency and integrity systems in the social, economic, and cultural aspects.
