National Priorities: Leadership Development

To maintain a strong voice for the empowerment of women, the National YWCA of Lebanon established a leadership training program to enable young women's participation at decision-making levels and to foster their involvement in the social rebuilding process. Women of different age groups, from all over Lebanon, are provided with the necessary skills for personality development, and the motivation to become involved in the leadership process for the advancement of all women in their society.

Being the oldest women's volunteer movement in Lebanon, the YWCA has, through its membership, trained many women from other faiths, and has prepared them for leadership in their own associations.
