Mu’tasim Mahadeen is the Regional Coordinator and Training Consultant of the Youth Program in the National Democratic Institute (NDI) for International Affairs in Amman, Jordan. Mu’tasim strongly believes in the power of youth and communities in contributing to the desired development in society - people are the catalyst of any development process that responds to their need and vision.
Mu’tasim comes from a background of working with youth projects. He provides capacity building training to youth, tackling the issues of self-awareness, appreciation and development, besides a range of life skills topics to help them think and decide about their involvements in their own local communities. He works to empower them to consider the potential of youth-led initiatives, advocacy campaigns, debate clubs, dialogue clubs and networking. Mu’tasim was directly involved in working with civil society as part of a capacity-building team at institutional level.
Mu’tasim is passionate about politics, democracy, human rights, diversity, global citizenship and pluralism, and seeks ways to be involved in these issues of concern.
