The National Bloc is organizing a 4-day intensive learning Youth Bootcamp to train Lebanese youth to modern politics.

Through three main tracks the training will address the ways to reach the Lebanon we want: Effectively Democratic, Sovereign and Neutral, and Social Liberal.

The Bootcamp will bring together youth, age 18-35, from diverse social backgrounds and regions to discuss their common goals for Lebanon. It's an open application policy; everyone is encouraged to submit.

The training will be composed of a mix of courses covering politics, public policy, and elections as well as role-play and workshops to participate in engaging activities. 

The National Bloc will cover all expenses of the training; participants will be hosted in local hotels in double rooms. Meals, accommodation, and transportation will be provided for the participants as part of the program.
