The Silatech Approach

The challenges facing young Arabs today can’t be solved by governments alone. Or by the private sector. Or by development organizations. It will take a combined effort from corporations, non-governmental organizations, governments, universities, financial institutions, media and others to create the jobs and economic opportunities that young people need.

Recognizing this, Silatech works with a wide variety of partners from various sectors throughout the region. As a small but innovative and agile organization, we look to make the most impact by empowering our partners on the ground.

Development- and Youth-Centered NGOs

Silatech works with a wide assortment of NGOs in the “development ecosystem.” If you represent a development or youth-serving NGO in the region, have a look at what Silatech is doing in your country, and see what our programs are about.

Governments

Smart public policy is perhaps the single most important tool for creating economic opportunity for young people. We support governments in developing national youth strategies, mainstreaming the youth agenda into national development plans, and developing policies and programs that can improve opportunities for youth. If you represent a government in the region interested in specialized research or policy advisory services, we may be able to help.

Colleges and Universities

Effective career guidance and counseling are virtually non-existent throughout much of the Arab world, and young people often have little or no formal guidance about the career options open to them. We partner with colleges and universities to offer a psychometric assessment tool (Tamheed) tailored specifically for the Arab world, and our Ta3mal employability portals link job seekers with entry level positions. For more information on how Silatech can enrich the career guidance and job placement opportunities your college or university can offer to students, click here.

Financial Institutions

Contrary to popular belief, financial products designed for the high-growth youth market do not necessarily carry more risk for financial institutions than those designed for other age groups. We work with financial institutions to structure loans and other products for young people, as well as provide technical assistance in their design and deployment. For more information on how Silatech can help your financial institution open new markets by benefitting youth, click here.

Corporations and Social Enterprises

We partner with a wide array of employers to provide internships and especially job openings for our Ta3mal portals. We are also a founding member of Entrepreneurship with Impact (EWI), a regional fund which invests in social enterprises and also helps to connect low-income and underserved communities in rural and semi-urban areas (”base of the pyramid”) to the core business of large national and multinational corporations, thereby creating jobs for youth.

Media

Public awareness is an essential part of the effort to support the youth agenda. If you are a journalist, presenter, blogger or commentator interested in boosting public awareness of the challenges that young people face, our research, experts and experience can help.
