Al-Massar (The Cause):

 is an organization seeking to find ways for exchanging view points among 30 Lebanese and Palestinian institutions, aiming at forming a network among the youth acting associations. It took place with the help of the American Save the Children institution, lasting for about 18 months. It included workshops and meetings to set a strategy for working with the youngsters. These efforts ended up in forming “Al-Massar”. A Palestinian committee was formed starting its work with organizing dialogue meeting at the St. Joseph University, between Palestinian and Lebanese youngsters. This gathering uncovered the deep differences in the points of view, but at the same time, it proved the possible democratic dialogue within a positive atmosphere, able to provide a chance to reach common vision and practical positions, and may work it out to achieve it.

The Progressive Youth Organization(PYO): 

as great favor in providing appropriate places to hold the gatherings and summer camps conducted by the SCC, starting in 1998, in the Progressive Scout Headquarters in Delhamiyeh. It also facilitated the three camps in the Scout City in Ein Zhalta. In addition, many workshops were organized by this organization. We also participated with it in the women’s demonstration organized by the international institution of “Follow the Women”, subsidizing with the Palestinian people.

The Palestinian-Lebanese Camp was conducted with the coordination of the SCC with the PYO. It was a critical attempt to promote partnership among the Palestinian and Lebanese youth organizations. The camp activity concluded with an agreement to form a core lobby (pressure force) of the participants to enable the refugees in the camps gain their civil and social rights. Accordingly, the SCC youngsters called upon the participants for meeting to tackle this issue; however, attendants were few. That indicates the need for more maturity and clarity.

Jeel (Generation):

Jeel is a Lebanese association that deals with issues of citizenship and the right to know. We joined them in several beneficial workshops.
