The ceremony marked the graduation of 72 trainees who have successfully completed Y4F’s Passport To Success’ (PTS) five-month program geared towards developing young individuals’ life skills. The graduation ceremony took place on Wednesday 25th February, 2013, at the Guesthouse for the Elderly.
The CBO Khreibet Al Souq Women’s Charity Association has a two year strategic partnership with Y4F, and has provided several training courses to youth residing in the area. The PTS program equips young people – ages 15 to 24 – with a range of skills including confidence, teamwork, goal setting and time management, to help them stay in school, find employment and succeed in life.
Tamam Al Agaleen, President of Khreibet Al Souq Women’s Charity Association, commented, “Tens of hundreds of young people have benefited from the PTS program’s courses which have amplified their chances of leading more successful lives. As a responsible CBO, it is our duty to seek out and offer comprehensive training programs that enable youth to garner the necessary tools and skills needed to establish the key building blocks that are necessary for them to realize their potential.”
Sabah Al Harthi, a graduate who partook in the PTS program said, “On behalf of all my fellow graduates, I would like to extend our sincerest gratitude towards IYF and Khreibet Al Souq Women’s Charity Association for presenting us with this invaluable opportunity to garner essential life skills and create a better future for ourselves, our families and our communities.”
Youth for the Future – formerly known as Youth:Work Jordan (YWJ) – is a five-year USAID social development program implemented by the International Youth Foundation (IYF) in collaboration with the Government of Jordan. Working in partnership with public, private and civil society organizations, the program aims to create an enabling environment for vulnerable youth – aged between 15 and 24 – by improving the quality of services offered to young individuals who have dropped-out of school, are unemployed or are unable to secure a job.
