Knowledge is Power! Invest in the growth and capacity of Palestine's greatest asset! And Support young Palestinian Professionals! We aim to give recent Palestinian university graduates in the West Bank: 1) an edge in the job market, 2) knowledge to better equip them for success in the workplace, and 3) confidence in their professional abilities.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
We see the value of helping to develop and improve the professional skills and capabilities of Palestine's future generation, because we believe this will help give recent university graduates an advantage in the job market by helping to enhance their chances of employment and to better prepare them for the realities and expectations of the professional world. Training and preparation is important for the professional success of Palestinian young professionals!
How will this project solve this problem?
Our Professional Development Program specifically aims to help recent university graduates obtain practical knowledge and skills that will help them in their job-hunting efforts and better equip them for the work environment. Examples of some of the topics we have offered include, but are not limited to the following subjects: CV & Interviews, Presentation Skills, Leadership, Writing Skills, Effective Communication Skills, Time Management, Workplace Environment, and Computer Skills.
Potential Long Term Impact
The more young professionals we are able to invest in, the more we believe that over time, this will help boost the overall professional wellbeing of Palestinians in the West Bank, and help contribute to the economic stability and growth in Palestine.
