The Importance of Youth Inclusion in Electoral Programs, “Ahamieh” 2010

After the success of Ahamieh in 2007, the project was duplicated in 2010 to help youth identify a candidate representing their interests, regardless of tribal and cultural preferences, interferences, or loyalties. Again, more than 3,000 young Jordanians participated in the project’s trainings on debate and dialogue skills and take part in the discussions and debates with the candidates running for the parliamentary elections, where over than 100 candidates joined. Another component was added to this round; a study using a peer focused approach about "Perceptions of Jordanian youth towards political, economic and social issues". The project was unique, attributed to its short-term and high impact nature.

The project was funded by the National Democratic Institute, with a grant of 60,000 USD.
