Lebanese Youth Coalition against Corruption (LYCAC): The Youth Civil Society & Leadership (YCSL) program started in April 2008 and brought together a network of youth leaders and activists, among them members of the 20 anti-corruption groups formed under the umbrella of this initiative.
More than 500 youth leaders participated so far in the YCSL program activities including 325 youth who attended 88 hours of extensive issue-based training. In addition, 136 young men and women have received support to carry out their own anti-corruption projects.
Youth leaders participating in the YCSL activities are from 38 villages in seven of the most volatile regions in Lebanon and belong to fourteen (14) different religious communities.
To consolidate transparency and accountability efforts of the youth over the life of the program, the program launched the Lebanese Youth Coalition Against Corruption (LYCAC) that includes more than 500 volunteer, anti-corruption youth activists (ages 18-25), serving as LYCAC representatives from across the country.
LYCAC's mission is to lead the fight against corruption, and curb the impact of corruption on Lebanese youth. The overarching goal of LYCAC is to diminish the level of tolerance that youth have towards corruption. LYCACs efforts include raising awareness, lobbying Lebanese institutions to implement anti-corruption reforms, acting as an anti-corruption watchdog and bridging divides among youth.

In a heavily politicized and polarized society, youth often wonder what role they can play. There exist plenty of opportunities for all of you activists out there to engage in: Maw2af.org sheds the light on a few examples.
