Board members of the Lebanon Renaissance Foundation (LRF), lecturers and participants representing the various Lebanese political parties got together in a special event at Quantum House to celebrate the closing of the 6th Edition of the Youth Leadership Program (YLP) 2019.

Program Associate Melkar el Khoury addressed the audience with a welcome note by stressing the importance of reviving the values in the Lebanese political scene – which reflect the core principle of the Program – in times where ethics are overwhelmed by interests and authority.

In his speech, Communication and Relations Director Fady Bustros praised the ongoing commitment of all contributors to making the Program a unique experience.

In her intervention, Princess Hayat Arslan asked for a massive participation at this year’s Flag Day on November 21st.

Afterwards, the Foundation’s Board members, Princess Arslan, Mr. Chalres Hage and Mr. Elie Khoury handed the awards and certificates respectively to both the lecturers and the participants.

The event was followed by a reception.
