What We Do

We prepare Arab youth for the world of work, we connect them with jobs, and we help them start and grow businesses.

Youth unemployment is a worldwide problem. But nowhere is the challenge more pressing than in the Arab world, which, at 29%, has the highest rate of any region.

Our dual program approach prepares youth and links them with existing job opportunities, while helping young entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses, creating jobs in the process. Underpinning it all is a belief in innovative, evidence-based programming that can be replicated and scaled up to achieve maximum impact.

Almost all of our programs are conducted through partnerships. We work with over 100 partners from the public, private and civil society sectors to help young people escape the unemployment trap and realize their full potential.
