They are the heart of the Mouvement Social.
We see in them the future leaders of Lebanon, the agents of change for more social justice.
Our mandate is to enroll the biggest number possible of volunteers, train them to become active citizens and equip them with the gears to face life challenges and make a difference in their communities.
We believe that through these empowered youth volunteers, our society will reach development from within, taking full charge of its own destiny.
“The objective of the Mouvement Social is to rally young people who want to commit to social action, train them, ideologically and practically, so that they could contribute to solving the social problems of the country”.

This volunteering spirit has grown like a snowball at Mouvement Social. Groups and clubs were constituted, generations of volunteers have spread throughout the country, readily available to act.
A lot has been done with and for our volunteers, and the action goes on.
This initiative aims at empowering affected youths, in order to strengthen the resilience of the Lebanese civil society and improve crisis prevention and management.
Through Shabake, our Volunteers have been organizing, leading and executing educational activities, summer camps and support for vulnerable children, social surveys, and development work of various sorts.
Safir supports young volunteer project-leaders by providing them with well-tailored trainings covering professional topics of interest such as SDG’s and advocacy.
This nurtures their knowledge and strengthens their abilities to conceive, carry out and advocate for their own youth-led initiatives.
