We work to increase the role of syrian young people in building peace. On the basis of our vision, we work primarily on two different types of activities: International advocacy for syrian youth participation in peacebuilding and strengthening the capacity of youth peacebuilders in the form of training series, long term partnerships and publications. With our advocacy activities we aim to shape international policy and practice on peacebuilding, encouraging enabling environments for young peacebuilders working at the local, national levels . By strengthening the capacities of youth peacebuilding we aim to empower them to be even more effective in the work they do locally and thereby also strengthen the voice of young people working for peace.
SYA works to increase the capacity of young peacebuilders to have an impact on their own societies and work for peace. Our main activity to strengthen youth peacebuilders consist of training courses, using the methodology of non-formal learning. We implement both individual trainings and long-term training series, with online and offline training elements.
