Leaders of Tomorrow is a group of young leaders in Jordan who aim at discussing pressing topics within the Jordanian society among the younger generations of Jordanians.
In workshops, conferences, briefs, and reports Leaders of Tomorrow addresses the current social, economic and political situation in Jordan. The mission of Leaders of Tomorrow is to create understanding within the Jordanian society, as a diverse and colored community. One of our priorities is to shape our attitudes and behaviors toward the changing society. What effects do globalization and advanced technology have on our society through our traditions, religions, media, and education systems that make up our society?
Our main activities deal with sensitive issues that are often considered a taboo to talk about. Leaders of Tomorrow aims at creating an open environment in which such topics as women rights, abortions, virginity, child abuse, family dependence, women in labor force, can be freely and openly discussed among young leaders. As young professionals within the Jordanian society we are concerned with our internal politics. In recent years the Iraqi issue and the Palestinian refugee problem have occupied the daily life of many. Through our activities we attempt to relate the political changes within Jordan and reflect back on the society and individuals.
