Training project to mitigate the impact of Syrian refugees on host communities.
The CEO of JCEF, Mayyada Abu Jaber, told Petra that the project aims at training young people in specialized demand-driven skills in various sectors, according to the needs of the Jordanian labor market.
The current project which is funded by the government of Japan brings together 25 young men for technical market-driven training, as well as providing them with job opportunities in factories under a signed agreement between the foundation and these facilities, she said.
Abu Jaber added that the JCEF aims at creating job opportunities for Jordanian youth by providing an employer-driven quality training and placement program.
The JCEF is a non-profit organization that leads a national initiative to create job opportunities for unemployed Jordanian youth, developing tailor made vocational, technical and managerial training programs that meet the needs of potential employers.
The JCEF has partnered with leading businesses, philanthropists, and educational institutions to create a strong local organization. Since 2006, the foundation has trained almost 400 youth in eight program areas and over 20 sessions, placed over 82.2% of youth directly into jobs, and maintained a six-month retention rate of almost 86%. The JCEF has also established a vibrant alumni network where alumni give back to current trainees and the community.
