Mediterranean Youth Development Empowerment Action Lab – a long-term research initiative


In the dynamic and diverse Mediterranean especially in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the youth face unique developmental challenges that require innovative and multi-dimensional solutions. This has resulted in a growing demand for programs that not only address these inequities but also harness the potential of young individuals to contribute to their communities. In this regard, the Mediterranean Youth Development Empowerment Action Lab (MYDEAL) was launched as a continuous holistic response to youth challenges in the MENA region. MYDEAL aims to bridge the current youth disparities and challenges through a capacity-building framework to support empowerment, action, and experiential lifelong learning.
