The Crown Prince Foundation also hosted a youth discussion session with the Arab Youth Centre today, titled 'Our Youth, Our Power', to discuss the role of leading youth in community development through volunteer work.
The discussion included Al Mazrui and 30 young individuals who are part of the initiatives of the Crown Prince Foundation, the 'Haqeq Councils', 'Massar' and Al Hussein Technical University. The discussion was moderated by the journalist, Mohammed Al Khaledy, a presenter for the Rouya Channel in Jordan.
During the discussion, Al Mazrui said that the power of the youth is the main driver of growth and development in any community.
She added that young people are the future, and they should be the ones to identify the challenges they will face and the best methods of overcoming these challenges. Everyone should work together to overcome geographical borders and promote mutual factors that unite the Arab people and encourage collective work among the youth to develop their communities, she concluded.
