WHO WE ARE
WE ARE HERE TO BUILD CAPACITIES, INSPIRE ACTION AND CONNECT PEOPLE AND CAUSES
At Global Platform Jordan we support civil society organisations, social movements, youth networks and individuals who work to promote the agenda of youth-led social change.
We offer tailor-made capacity building within a wide range of topics, varying from creative activism and youth leadership to democratic governance and global citizenship. We have developed an effective methodology for designing, carrying out and evaluating capacity building.
All trainings and activities are based on our participatory and action-oriented learning principles:
SUPPORTING YOUTH-LED INITIATIVES
We also support several non-curricular initiatives, which seek to strategize, plan, carry out and evaluate different forms of youth-led organising and direct action.
The Global Platform is a dynamic and inspiring environment where young people can think freely, develop their own ideas and connect, discuss and act on local, national and global political issues.
ACTIONAID COMMUNITY CENTRES
Through ActionAid’s Community Centers in Mafraq, Madaba, Zarqa and Russaifah, Global Platform Jordan offers a variety of training and activities for young people – such as youth community engagement, facilitating community change and community action research. Moreover, the young people in the Community Centres are learning how to express their problems, dreams and hopes through art, music and video campaigning.
The Community Centres are safe spaces for young people to be creative and think about their future and ambitions. It is places for young people to get organised, inspire each other and be empowered to take action and be an important part of the change they want to see in the world.
