Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO) supports refugees and marginalized communities toward building resilience and well-being amidst conflict.
Our Education, Livelihood, Women’s Empowerment, and Mental Health programs are need-based, multigenerational, holistic, evidence based, and trauma-informed. TYO is locally led and internationally informed, with a team of local staff and international experts collaborating to provide contextualized services for the most vulnerable communities. We respond to the emotional, psychological and physical needs of the most vulnerable children, youth, and holistically, their families.
TYO serves the most disadvantaged areas in Nablus: the neighborhoods of Khallet al Amood and the Old City, as well as the city’s four refugee camps-Al Ein, Balata, Old Asker, and New Asker. The students, teachers, and communities in these areas are deeply affected by Israeli settlements, military bases, and military checkpoints that surround the city of Nablus. Facing ongoing violence and trauma, Palestinian communities suffer from overwhelming high rates of mental illness.
Despite the need, mental health services are among the most under-resourced and stigmatized areas of healthcare. To bridge this gap, our center serves as a safe haven and healing space for traumatized communities. We address the collective and intergenerational impacts of trauma by integrating mental health and psychoeducation into each of our programs to serve children, parents, and communities at large.
