Our Mission

The Syrian Youth Assembly is working with Syrian youth across boundaries to create a better and safer future for all based on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and United Nations Security Council Resolution 2250 and 2418 on Youth, Peace, and Security. The Syrian Youth Assembly empowers young women and youth with Peacebuilding and SDGs knowledge; 21st-century skills and global citizen values to live in a peaceful and prosperous world.

Why Youth?

Before the start of the conflict, Syria was home to one of the youngest populations in the world. Around one-third of the Syrian population is between 10 and 24 years old. As the Syrian conflict enters its 9th year, the impact it has had on adolescence, youth, and women has been particularly devastating. Instead of entering an age of transition filled with learning, exploration, dreams, and ambitions, those groups have been continuously exposed to a brutal war, experiencing indescribable suffering through displacement and continued conflict, which impacts not only their present but also their future. Yet these young people will be responsible for the re-building of the country. Therefore, SYA believes that empowering and involving them on various levels is essential for Syria’s social, political, and economic stability and future.

Our Vision

We aim to organize and mobilize the Syrian youth, develop their skills and secure their basic needs of education, work and development in order to influence and participate in the Syrian peace process in the short term and mobilize support for peace and rebuilding Syria in the long term.

We aim to achieve effective and sustainable development in the community through qualified cadres and effective partnerships working to implement a number of programs and projects professionally based on systems of transparency and integrity in both social, economic and cultural aspects.
