As a unique resource platform for youth, the YDRC today plays an important role in the Hebron area. Given its position in the community, the YDRC has collaborated with numerous local and international organization and universities to implement themed youth programmes at the centre. Projects have focused on areas such as environmental awareness and conservation, creative arts, business incubation and robotics. At the moment music, language, technology and leadership skills define our cooperation programs.  

 

Edward Said National Conservatory of Music

Because of Hebron´s religiously conservative society learning music doesn´t find much support in the local community. There are no institution for teaching music instruments or vocals are in the city or its near surroundings.

Regarding such circumstances the YDRC wanted to bring change towards this subject and decided to use its facilities for teaching music. Following a partnership with the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music has been established in 2010. Since then students between the ages of 5 to 23 years old have the chance to attend regular musical classes and learn instruments like the violin, cello, oud, viola, qanoun, drums and flute. The response to this offer has been great and many young students happily took this unique opportunity to engage with music.

 

Nayzak Organisation - Young Researcher Program

This journey urges adolescents to think differently of issues that are important from their criticizing point of view. They dive in the midst of the evolving scientific research and start researching and analyzing until they become pioneers in providing a role model for their peers.
