What we do

Shams Community organizes and facilitates gatherings and community events such as dialogues, workshops, talks, and tours led by passionate global citizens called Hosts. Hosts are eager to engage their own communities in dialogue, understand different cultural views, and convert this dialogue into positive community impact.

Shams provides the Host with training, guidelines, toolkits, and a connection to a worldwide network of other Hosts as well as continuously supports their personal development and growth.

 

Shams Community has had a long journey to get to where it is today.

In 2011, the project started as a youth initiative called Irbid Youth Volunteers in the north of Jordan, based on the idea that each individual has the potential to create positive change from themselves and for society. In 2015, Shams began a process of research and development which led to the relaunch of Shams Community under the same vision. In 2016, with the help of dedicated volunteers from around the world, Shams Community opened its doors as a safe space that brings people from different backgrounds together to express and exchange their thoughts on social and personal issues while sharing a meal.

From our space in Amman, Shams Community has begun spreading its vision with the aim of becoming a global community that works to create safe spaces for people to connect, learn, engage in dialogue, and create social change.
