About Us

National Youth Service Week is an initiative of Volunteer For Lebanon (تطوّعوا للبنان) (www.volunteerforlebanon.org). VFL was established to serve as the national hub for volunteering in Lebanon with the mission "to promote, facilitate, and improve volunteering and community service throughout Lebanon." As a hub, we want to link the many initiatives in Lebanon that promote volunteering and we want to provide support to volunteers as well as the organizations, service institutions, schools, universities, companies, and government agencies that recruit, engage, encourage, and support volunteers.  Volunteer For Lebanon is non-profit, non-sectarian, non-governmental, with a comprehensive approach to volunteering that serves all the stakeholders in the volunteer eco-system. It received its علم وخبر from the Ministry of Interior (#2025) on September 29, 2015.

The main partner for National Youth Service Week 2019 (as it was for NYSW 2017 and 2018) is the American University of Science and Technology (AUST). It provides venues for training programs and other events, material support, and other training assistance.
