I hope this greeting finds each of you in the best of health and spirits. Ramadan Kareem for those observing Ramadan during this holy month. We are just about to complete another cycle of professional development training, and would like to bring you up to date, and share with you details of the latest training, some testimonials and pictures.
We have partnered with a new organization HRD (Human Resource Development) for this current cycle to conduct the training to recent university graduates. In the past, beneficiaries of our professional training program were from Birzeit University; and we are pleased to announce that for this cycle we also have attendees from Al-Quds University. Due to the large number of participants attending the training this cycle, we have divided the training into 2 sessions: the first session which finished on June 29th; and the 2nd session is currently in progress.
Topics for the training included:
- Business and Email writing
- English Language
- CV writing / Presentation / Branding
- Time management
- Coaching and leadership
- Computer Skills
We received positive feedback from participants, and wanted to share with you what some of them had to say:
"The Arab Americare Foundation is US based organization that concentrates on developing professional and economic wellbeing of Palestinian young graduates. This organization achieves its mission through the Palestinian Youth Leadership Program. It provides professional training and enhances the employability of young professionals. On a personal level, the training course has benefited me in many aspects. It taught me how to construct an efficient CV and cover letter. Moreover, it helped me develop a certain idea about people, as each and every person is different, with different personalities and characteristics. Therefore, different approaches need to be undertaken to treat people, whether they are customers or employees. Furthermore, it emphasized on the importance of time management, since people can be more productive and efficient through organizing their time. Finally, it helped me understand the importance of researching, preparing, and communicating to prevent potential crises within a company, and the steps that need to be undertaken to deal with such problems."

"As this course has enriched my personal and professional skills, I believe I am capable now of being a good interviewee and employee. As a fresh graduate, I have studied the theories and did internships, but this intensive course have added more beneficial information I will definitely use every day of my career life and will open ways to get a job. Finding people who understand what the market needs, and what skills we should have to meet these needs, creates wider opportunity to get a job and be a part of building our country. This is a lifetime chance." Lina
