Youth Leadership Development Project



It seeks to train public and private school students on several skills at an early stage to help them build their entrepreneurial and leadership capabilities.

The concept behind the Leadership Development Skills Programme

The programme seeks to build the leaderships and entrepreneurial skills of 9th grade students at public and private schools at an early stage in partnership with the Inspirational Development Group, which is based in the UK.


The programme, which runs all year long, is divided into two phases where students are trained during the first phase on various leadership skills such as teamwork, communication skills, time management and how to take responsibility and resolve problems.


During the second phase, they are trained in the skills of the labor market, in addition to practical training in private companies in several industries such as health and media as well as other areas of information technology.
