SOS youth houses accommodate youth from the age of 14 till the age of 18. A youth house provides a home to 8 male or 8 female youth and each house is led by a male or female youth leader. Moving to an SOS youth house intends to be the first step towards an independent life outside SOS Children Villages. Currently in Jordan we have nine youth houses in the cities of Amman, Irbid and Aqaba.
SOS continues to provide support for the youth beyond the age of 18 years old. This support includes financial and technical support for those who are still studying in either academic or vocational paths. As well as for those who are looking for employment.
We have strategic partnerships, where residence rental, household expenses, health insurance and personal expenses are covered by our partners for those youth.
About 300 youth have graduated from SOS since 1996. Some of them have reintegrated/reunited/reunification with their biological families or with their relatives. Others are living an independent life and are self-sufficient / self-reliant. Most of our graduates have successfully developed professional careers in different sectors of Jordan´s economy such as business, engineering, hospitality and pharmaceutical sectors among others.
