A new, inspiring and fresh learning cycle designed by The Youth Company is now accessible to the youth of Qatar.
As an attempt to engage the youth The Youth Company has launched an all-‐new YOU-‐Training Program. The first sessions were held on the 8th and 9th of June 2012. Over 40 high school and university students received training on two different topics by TYC professionals. These sessions have enabled them to acquire new skills and develop specific competences.
Being only the beginning of a long-‐term program, this weekend was dedicated to “Feedback and evolution” and “Education and learning”. Each topic was delivered within a 3-‐hour session twice per day, allowing for the participation of more people. Participants utilized a great opportunity to know about the importance of feedback and its effective usage, along with different learning styles and productive education processes.
“I left this training with a feeling of honesty, I wish I had more friends to know about this”, -‐ shared his experience one of the attendees of the session “Feedback and Evolution”. One of the participants of the session “Education and Learning” commented on occasion: “More than recommended, awesome programs, it was good to know about teamwork”.
The YOU-‐Training Program is one of the main services of The Youth Company. Being the first youth social enterprise in Qatar, TYC aims to provide a platform for youth empowerment and development. Along with training sessions, The Youth Company offers Qatar’s youth professional experience in the form of Internships through a free online portal; internship.qa, Youth Support & Funding Program, volunteer opportunities and various community engagement events and awareness campaigns.
The YOU-‐Training sessions will continue with other 16 different topics, which are thoroughly selected and designed to meet the learning needs of Qatar’s youth and equip them with skills and competencies essential for personal as well as professional development. All trainings are free of charge for everyone aged 14-‐29, and require beforehand registration on-‐line. Due to limited amount of spaces available for each session, admission is organized on “first come, first served” basis.
We want to thank all the participants for the interest shown in YOU-‐Training program and for all those who worked hard to see this training program come through.
