Ever since its establishment, Hezbollah has been very active among the Shiite younger generation through a series of foundations and institutions: two education networks operating among the Shiite population (kindergartens, elementary schools, junior high schools); the Education Mobilization, an institution engaged in the indoctrination of students in the Lebanese education systems (including universities); the Imam al-Mahdi Scouts, Hezbollah’s youth movement; and the Sports Mobilization, which promotes extensive sports activity as a means to indoctrinate the younger generation.
