Duroob (Ways, in Arabic)
We believe that helping young Arab adults to volunteer in a professional manner
according to the needs of their community
will promote the development of human and community resources
and help to advance social change in the Arab society as a whole.
Participants volunteer in the mornings within the school system and in the afternoons in non-formal educational settings, according to the needs of the community, (40 weekly hours, 5 days a week). In addition, they lead various community projects.
In the volunteer training, participants receive practical tools, enhance their self-esteem and ability to feel they are making a real difference through their volunteering work.
Information and tools that help our participants in planning their future careers, including learning skills and technological skills.
The group leader holds regular group meetings once every two weeks and personal sessions whenever needed, to follow through on the educational process. The participants are faced with their successes and challenges, leading to individual and group empowerment as part of the creation of a team that can bring about social change.
Participants examine values of society and identity, in a diverse group setting. .
Volunteers also go on tours, out-door activities and team building workshops
