_ WHO WE ARE
Free Youth Foundation- FYF-, is a Jordanian youth organization established in 2020 that believes in freedom of speech, the rule of law, the free market, and human rights. We empower and engage young people in political, economic, and social work to enhance their role in the development process. FYF is a member of the International Federation of Liberal Youth “IFLRY”.
Politically aware youth with freedom of thought, active in their communities, and economically empowered participants in the reform process.
Creating a safe space for freedom of thought and expression, and developing programs to empower Jordanian youth politically and economically.
When you are young, you want to decide what your future will look like. Who you are, where you live, what you study, and what job you end up doing – theoretically this is all up to you. But politicians also have a say in your future. Economic inequality, political polarization, the number of student houses, the climate crisis, and military conflicts against our allies around the world. It is all politics that affect us. That is why it is important that we young people have a say in the political decisions that affect us. And that you get a seat at the table when those decisions are made! This is what the JD is all about.
The JD is affiliated with our “mother party” D66, but completely independent. The JD is a member organization of LYMEC, and IFLRY and maintains a network of contacts in the MENA region.
