Birzeit strengthens community engagement efforts with Volunteering Youth Forum presentation

Community Engagement

Gadah Alomare, the volunteer work coordinator at Birzeit University, and Muna Al Kurd, a student at Birzeit University, took part in the Volunteering Youth Forum, held in Doha, Qatar, on October 25- 27, 2018. 

In the forum, Alomare presented a paper on bolstering Birzeit University’s engagement with society and promoting education and volunteering activities. 

“Students at Birzeit University have to complete 120 hours of community service to graduate. The challenge, however, lies in distributing those community service activities,” said Alomare. “Students are the main partners in this scheme. They are the driving force behind this culture of community engagement in Palestine.”
