How We Make an Impact

Here’s how we create economic opportunities for unemployed youth in the Middle East and North Africa. First, we analyze local labor markets and talk to employers to understand where there is demand for entry-level employees, and what skills they need. Then, we create targeted youth training programs that link youth to employment or the wider world of work. Partnerships with thousands of companies, education institutions, and foundations enable us to offer job placements and other follow-on support to our graduates.
