Helping Jordanian young people overcome the barriers of high unemployment

 

With a youth unemployment rate of nearly 30%, one of the highest figures in the MENA region, Jordan has benefitted from the implementation of four Get Into pilots delivered by a consortium of local partners in the retail, banking, pharmaceuticals and hospitality sectors. The Get Into programmes addressed the skills gap, training the young people with the sector specific skills that employers were looking for. We are now working with the King Abdullah II Fund for Development to continue to roll-out the programme. We are also working with Mercy Corps to deliver the Team programme with disadvantaged young people in Salt and Zarqa.

 

“I am particularly happy that Prince’s Trust International, the new overseas arm of one of my most successful charities, is signing and agreement with The King Abdullah Fund for Development, the Business Development Center and Injaz to launch The Prince’s Trust Get Into programme here in Jordan. This programme will work with business to help young people find jobs in specific sectors.” H
