Abstract: The political context of prolonged conflict, trauma, and warlike conditions, with Israeli Occupation in the West Bank area of Palestine has created an extreme challenge to usual development strategies. This report describes the variety of approaches to youth involvement that have been developed over the past two years (2007-2009), and analyses the critical characteristics of Youth as a strategy (YaS) that can be tested for effectiveness and efficiency in the future. We came to understand that what people/youth want to do to in order to enhance their psychosocial health is in fact to support each other.
