Frequently Asked Questions

The requirements to be considered for LEBolution is to be of Lebanese descent, a member of the Lebanese Diaspora currently residing outside of Lebanon, and between the ages of 18 to 30 years old.

A common feeling amongst the youth worldwide is being uncertain on what more to do to help Lebanon. Working alongside and in collaboration with local NGOs active on the ground, the hope is that together, we will be able to unite and aid Lebanon through volunteering, while also exploring and absorbing the beauty of the land.

As the WLCU stands as a Trans-Global Organization associated with the Department of Global Communications (DGC) since 2009 and accredited to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations since 2011, during this trip, we aim to target as many of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

For over a week, this unique journey is designed to strengthen ones connection to Lebanon through a “tabbouleh” of cultural, touristic, social and humanitarian activities, exploring all corners of the country together, while meeting outstanding personalities of the country, holding forums to exchange visions about the present and future of Lebanon, among many more. Some trademark LEBolution activities include blood donation campaigns, cedar reforestation initiatives, forums with local youth organizations, recreational activities with the children of the martyrs of the Lebanese Army, visits and activities with the Lebanese Army’s Marine Commandos Regiment, participation in the ONE LEBANON festival, an international symposium on Lebanon’s crises hosted at the Lebanese American University (LAU), visits to the Lebanese Parliament, the Grand Serail, and the program’s traditional hand-painted Wall for Peace.

The aim of LEBolution 2023 will be to carry out a trip with a very humanitarian focus. A common feeling amongst the youth worldwide is being uncertain on what more to do to help Lebanon. Working alongside and in collaboration with local NGOs active on the ground, the hope is that together, we will be able to unite and do good for Lebanon through volunteering, while also exploring and absorbing the beauty of the land. As usual, any details and specifics will be provided before the date of the visit.
