Founded in 1997, the Children and Youth Center (CYC) provides space for the children and youth of Shatila and Nahr el-Bared refugee camp, to develop their potential.
The CYC is a non-governmental organisation, and caters to all nationalities residing within the camp, including many Syrian and Lebanese children. We believe all children and youth have the right to learn and play, in safety.

We believe all children and youth have the right to learn and play, in safety.
We believe in child rights
Therefore the CYC advocates, teaches, and practices child and human rights, under the International Child and Human Rights Convention. Children and youth are taught what their human rights are, and how best to fight for them. In the process our young people learn the importance of respecting the rights of others.
