Phase I – Selection
Students from all areas undergo three evaluation tests, based on which 42 out of 100 students are selected from each directorate.
Phase II – Training workshops
Students who pass phase I undertake training workshops that tackle community values which each young man or woman should acquire in addition to participating in a number of exercises.
Phase III – Field visit
Students are taken to a different governorate to reinforce the notion of citizenship and strengthen their sense of belonging to other areas in Jordan. Students are placed in a new environment, under the broad umbrella of the whole country concept instead of the governorate. Students are integrated in other communities through taking part in a variety of voluntary activities in addition to visiting the touristic sites in that area.
Phase IV – Camps
Military camps are one of the most important stages of the initiative, where participants from directorates in the north, center and south of Jordan are brought together and dialogue among students is encouraged. Camps run for three days. Day one focuses on physical fitness, whereas day two focuses on intellectual thinking and day three is built around activities that combine both physical and intellectual skills focusing on teamwork.
Phase V – Leaders camp
This is the final stage of the initiative, where 5 students who have achieved the highest scores throughout the four phases are selected from each directorate.
