The project will focus on enabling youth for adulthood in a challenging context and unstable region, where youth as citizens and co-citizens must navigate in the difficult and vulnerable transition phase going from school- to work life. This will be fostered via capacity building of Jordanian and Syrian teachers, working in host communities in Jordan. They will receive training in new knowledge of, Citizenship, Co-existence, and Human Rights
