The two-day monthly YOU Training workshop organized by Qatar’s social enterprise The Youth Company, concluded its April edition at the Youth Hub Qatar. Youth numbering up to 25 attended the weekend training exercise which has imparted them with useful work related skills which will get them ready for workforce.
About 25 youth of different nationalities attended the YOU Training exercise tagged “Leadership Education Cycle”. The two day training which commenced on Friday focused on empowering younger critical thinkers between the ages of 13 to 23. First day of the training offered tips on leadership awareness and styles, and workshops on time, stress and team management at the Youth Hub Qatar. The youth were able to develop the self-confidence to increase their chances of success with series of group activities and lessons to help them learn about themselves and work effectively with others.
The second day provided youth with more intensive training on public speaking, project management, leadership and creativity. Trainees were tasked to create skits, drawings and videos as practical results from the session.
“For the youth, the Leadership Education Cycle was two days of life-changing adventure, self-discovery, culture exchange and leadership-development. The youth arrived with so much enthusiasm and they left with the ability to work with people of different origins and affect action for common good. Now, they have been imparted with the knowledge and tools needed to equitable change in the community,” said Abdulrahman Sajid, TYC’s Chief Executive Officer.
17 year old Yazan Shehab claim that he has benefited immensely from the training programme and that he is set to put the tips and strategies acquired into complete implementation. “This is a life changing programme, I have gained a lot from this. If I can put them into practice I believe sky would be my limit because it’s awesome that I am exposed to all of these at a younger age,” he said.
Next month’s edition will feature three days of leadership training with the first two days covering indoor trainings and the last day experiencing outdoor workshops.
