Bethlehem – Palestine
The Latin Patriarchate and in cooperation with the dioceses in Italy are proposing the establishment and operations of a Youth Center in the Bethlehem area that will serve as a focal point for youth exchange program from Italy in particular, and the rest of the world in general. The Youth center that will serve and house incoming youth groups will ensure that local youth are also part of this dialogue. The center will not only advocate for the needs of the youth in general terms but is a springboard for the advocacy, on behalf of the local Christian youth in the Holy Land. Through exchange trips, summer camps, volunteer work, Youth both international and local will encourage solidarity and cooperation amongst themselves individually and collectively.
