Background: Youth unemployment remains high across the Middle East and particularly so in Palestine. “Palestine Ta3mal” employability platform was launched in 2012 by Silatech and Microsoft Citizenship to support workplace development across the Middle East and North Africa region. To date, the network has benefited close to 500,000 youth. Our local partners arejobs.ps and the Ministry of Labor whom we’re collaboratively working with. Recently we’vesigned Memorandum of Understandings with most Palestinian universities across the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Project Summary: SharekYouth Forum has recently took over “Palestine Ta3mal” project and we’re working hand in hand with youth from universities and educational centers across the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Ta3mal is a regional employability portal that connects young people, youth and job-seekers to future career paths, online learning and job opportunitiesand links potential entrepreneurs to mentors, partners and funding prospects.
