The "Jezzine Hub" will serve as a community center for the youth of the area of Jezzine.

The inauguration ceremony was followed by a social innovation seminar, and activities with the local associations throughout Saturday and Sunday. A call for ideas to which youth of the area can apply and receive support to develop and realize ideas for initiatives with a social value for the community was launched as well.

The "Jezzine Hub" has been created in the framework of a project funded by the European Union and Italy, and implemented by Oxfam, DPNA and the Union of Municipalities of Jezzine. The overall objective of the hub is to strengthen the involvement of Jezzine young citizens in the socio-economic development of their communities. The hub will serve the interests of the youth through the organization of cultural activities and entrepreneurship initiatives, and the promotion of social innovations. It will also serve as incubator, providing incubation of ideas through mentorship, networking opportunities, and tailored trainings for youth and youth associations.
