About the project
The Wadi Joz Youth Center was opened in 2020, thanks to the generous support of the Hassenfeld Family Foundation.
The youth center is the first purpose-built youth club in Wadi Joz and is home to the only youth movement active in the Arab neighborhoods of east Jerusalem. The 400 sq. m. building includes a multipurpose hall, activity rooms, staff offices and an outdoor activity area. During after-school hours, the youth also use the area of the adjacent school.
The activities in the center include volunteering in the local community and activities which emphasize the responsibilities and rights of citizens and encourage becoming active, involved adults.
The Wadi Joz Youth Center is a central venue for sports, music, social, cultural and volunteering activity for residents of Wadi Joz, Sheikh Jarrah and other nearby neighborhoods in east Jerusalem.
