The YLP was launched in 2015 as an initiative to build the region’s most dynamic network, working at the intersection of youth, innovation and sustainable development. Now in its 6th edition, the programme has worked with over 20,000 youth participants and 80 youth-serving organizations in 18 countries in the Arab region and supported the design of around 7,000 projects that address local development challenges.
