Leadership Incubator

The Leadership Program gives skills, networks and confidence to the next generation of changemakers in Palestine.

Zimam’s award-winning program provides our young leaders with the critical tools to have impact, foster unity and encourage social and political engagement throughout civil society.

Over 1200 activists attended over 50 leadership workshops in 2017. In 2018, that number rose to over 3000.

In 2018, Zimam organized over 50 workshops and events with experts in the fields of public speaking, communications, advocacy and campaigning.

“To live in peace we must create a healthy society for our children. We have to teach our kids tolerance, forgiveness and understanding. We have to teach them to love life and love their differences.”

– Global Teacher award winner, Hanan Hroub, during Zimam’s Non-Violence National Conference

2019 – 2020

Attracting young, emerging leaders, Zimam’s Leadership Incubator inspires the voices of tomorrow, equipping them with the confidence and training to lead their own communities. Through policy, skills and problem-solving workshops, engagement and meetings with business and political sector leaders, and opportunities to implement their own social action initiatives in their communities, we are empowering young people to realise their potential as confident and capable architects of change, running for elections on their campuses and in their municipalities, and enhancing democracy and accountability across Palestine.
