Omar Al-Tal, a Youth Program Leader in Jordan, believes in the incredible potential of young people today. Omar works in Mercy Corps’ youth centers to provide academic support, teach skills like English and computers, and coach youth in life skills like communication, goal setting, and teamwork. The centers offer a sense of stability.
Please join us at Global Washington in Seattle on May 8 for a discussion with Omar on the opportunities and challenges these young people face as they approach the next phase of their lives, and hear his vision for how war is shaping the next champions for peace.
“When adolescents and youth have a vision they will dedicate their life to achieving it,” Omar says. “So our role basically is to help them build that vision, to help them to know themselves more, and to help them know the value that they have.”
