Youth Empowerment Program
The program provides a structured path for young generations to deepen their understanding of civic engagement. We offer a wide array of opportunities to build capacity for leadership among children, university students, fresh graduates, and middle-aged generations to enhance their ability to become more civically engaged and to positively impact society through social entrepreneurship, mentorship, and creativity. All civic engagement activities and programs offered by the center are based on the experiential learning approach and social constructivism pedagogy, which includes the following:
Activities and Programs
Civic Engagement Programs for Children
Intensive, focused, short-term learning winter and summer camps for children aged 6 to 12. The core aspect of the camps is to promote civic engagement and endorse the idea of social responsibility among young generations. The camps support the Center’s main purpose of serving as an incubator of knowledge, responsible business practices, civic leadership, and capacity building to promote effective social responsibility.
University-based Civic Engagement Programs
Our university-based programs aim to develop a generation of civic leaders to create community-engaged learning environments in the Arab region and to strengthen the center’s presence as a civic hub on AUC campus, Egyptian public and private universities, and Arab higher education at large.
Civic Engagement Programs for Fresh Graduates
The center offers various youth leadership programs to selected university graduates to work in civil society organizations and advance their dreams to make a difference in their field of interest. Our Leadership Programs give fresh graduates the knowledge, skills, and on-ground experience to actively and positively participate in the development of their communities.
