Educating Youth. Empowering Generations.
The Youth Academy was established at the Professional Development Foundation (PDF) in response to the urgent need to narrow the rapidly growing gap between education and the human resource needs of the business community. The Youth Academy aims to serve the Egyptian youth at large through offering especially designed training programs and scholarships in new and unique methods that are tailored to enable youth who lack the work/life skills to jump start their careers. Hence, Youth Academy grants these young graduates the unique opportunity to realize their potential & work/life aspirations.
Moreover, the Youth Academy offers a large selection of e-learning programs in English and Arabic languages which represent an innovative shift in the field of learning as it provides rapid access to specific knowledge and information. The E-learning programs offer online instruction that can be delivered anytime and anywhere through a wide range of electronic learning solutions, such as Web-based courseware, online discussion groups, live virtual classes, video and audio streaming, web chat, online simulations, and virtual mentoring.
Last but not least, the Youth Academy offers a unique package of career counseling and employment services specifically tailored to support graduates in identifying their areas of development and ideal career choice that matches their qualifications and personal aspirations in pursuing their career objectives. Moreover, a new package of employment services is offered to employers to support their efforts in recruiting the ideal graduates who are able to compete and seek advancement in their career path.
As the Youth Academy believes that “Employability is Part of Our Responsibility”, we measure the impact of our training programs and services by the employment rate of our graduates.
Empower fresh graduates to lead and develop successful career paths, and attain quality employment in today’s ever competitive job market.
Build a skilled, qualified and talented workforce by producing a new caliber of graduates who are able to enter and compete in today’s competitive job market; through designing and delivering cutting-edge demand driven training programs and services that are continuously tailored to meet the business and community at large.
