DUBAI — The Crown Prince Foundation (CPF) in Jordan and Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education (AGFE) in the United Arab Emirates signed a memorandum of understanding to support Jordan’s youth and launch a joint action to implement and promote the Al Ghurair Young Thinkers Program (YTP) among them.

The memorandum of understanding, which was signed over video conference by Dr. Tamam Mango, chief executive officer of the CPF, and Rashed Abdulla Al Ghurair, member of the AGFE Board of Trustees, outlines CPF’s role in overseeing YTP activities in Jordan for a period of three years; promoting YTP to youth across Jordan; and conducting, jointly with AGFE, an assessment study on the impact of YTP on youth in Jordan.

YTP, a free program launched by AGFE in the UAE in 2018, is accessible to all Arab youth aged 15-35 years and provides educational and soft-skills learning opportunities through a bilingual (English and Arabic) digital platform designed to enhance the education to employment journey and acquaint youth with the competencies that are consistent with labor market requirements.

Delighted by this new partnership, Dr. Mango said in her statement that “this partnership with the Abdulla Al Ghurair Foundation for Education is part of the CPF ‘employability and entrepreneurship’ focus area aimed at acquainting youth with the right skills and preparing them to join an ever-evolving labor market, leveraging various platforms to help them identify and maximize their strengths.”

Dr. Mango further explained that “CPF programs and initiatives are designed to achieve the CPF vision — ‘capable youth for an aspiring Jordan’ — through local, Arab, and international partnerships.

Along the same lines, Al Ghurair said: “We are happy to sign this partnership with the Crown Prince Foundation as it is in line with our common goals and vision of empowering youth in Jordan to become future leaders and drive sustainable development across the country and the Arab region at large.” — SG
