- Improve the quality of teaching of educators;
- Develop basic education programs which introduce and encourage best practices;
- Support leadership, problem-solving, critical thinking, and other life skills to better prepare young Palestinian men and women for the workforce; and
- Increase youth employability, thereby increasing the individual’s employment opportunities.
