PRCS runs a number of activities aiming at empowering youth and creating young community leaders who will act as active citizens taking their responsibilities towards their communities.
Various training courses, seminar and lectures are organized to develop the different life, managerial and leadership skills of those young leaders. In addition to that, the PRCS’ youth represent the Society and Palestine in any events and gatherings at the international fora.
Moreover, the PRCS focuses in its youth program on developing street sports activities and organizing IT skills courses and this implemented in cooperation with the Danish Red Cross Youth.
Through sports, children and youth will have a free space to unleash energy and release psychological pressure emphasizing fair play and team spirit. As for the IT trainings, they allow youth to have better chances of realizing their educational, professional and creative ambitions. Youth will be able to communicate, network and advocate professionally and socially at the national and international levels with their peers.
Another important activity is the YABC that stands for “Youth as Agents of Behavioral Change”. This is organized in cooperation with the International Federation of Red CrossRed Crescent Societies (IFRC) with the aim of training youth to help in making the change in their community in a unique way that is different and more efficient through seminars, games and events.
As part of the youth program, the PRCS has five community centers located in Bethlehem, Hebron, Jenin, Nablus and Gaza where a variety of recreational, educational, cultural, and sports activities are organized
