Youth Volunteer Committee

The Administrative committee (of the society) made it priority to actively emphasize the role of youth volunteers. It rented a gathering center for them, furnished and equipped it with relevant equipments. Further more, it had allocated the funds in the budgeting process to cover most of their activities. In the last three (3) years, the volunteers were noticeably active; they had planned an annual summer camp – which included children from the old city, complete with the premises, transportations, and meals all through – out the camp period. The camp participants were furnished with special attire and accompanied with guides and trainers to make their camp venture a thrilling and memorable experience.

During the holy month of Ramadan each year, the volunteers intensify their work where they have high profile appearance all through – out the courts of the Holy Al-Aqsa Mosque, guiding the people to the designated areas of pray, and directing them to alternative routes during the congestion and bottlenecks at the city gates. They move the sick and the unable people to first aid centers or to ambulances. In tandem with the Jerusalem schools administration, the youth volunteers engage in an annual drive to collect book bags and distribute it to the needy students at the Jerusalem area schools.
