#UNV - Jordan Summer Camp | Arab Youth Volunteering for a Better Future
Arab Youth Volunteering for a Better Future is a regional project, led by the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme, which seeks to support youth to effectively engage in the development processes of their countries through volunteerism. This regional initiative is implemented in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Tunisia and Yemen. The project is part of UNV's growing efforts to engage young people, and falls within its UN Youth Volunteers Programme.
In August 2013, Arab Youth Volunteering for a Better Future organized a Youth Volunteer Summer Camp in Jordan, in order to strengthen youth volunteering capacities, and provide an opportunity for 30 young Jordanian volunteers to exchange experiences. This video shows their experience during the summer camp, and how it has changed their way of perceiving volunteerism.
