The Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) launched a "Youth Leader Project" in January 2020, in which 200 young men and women from 5 states (Greater Tunisia, Bizerte, Jendouba, Kairouan, Sfax) received training for more than 9 months on combating corruption and extremism, instilling values of citizenship and democracy, leadership skills, community entrepreneurship.
These young people are presenting 31 community projects that are concerned with various fields, such as combating corruption, fighting extremism, confronting school dropouts, drug resistance, protecting the environment, and others. The second part of this project started in 2020 to benefit five other states: Sousse, Sidi Bouzid, Kasserine, Madinen, Gabes.
