Middle East & North Africa

We understand the challenge of youth unemployment in the Middle East and North Africa and have worked tirelessly to attack it from all angles. Our employability work builds from our signature life skills curriculum, Passport to Success® , which has been helping young people excel personally and professionally in the region. To help these young workers plan for success while we’re also building local capacity, IYF supports regional partners as they bolster their career guidance services. For youth already setting out on a social entrepreneurship path, our YouthActionNet® initiative connects them with the resources to flourish. Overall, whether it’s in MoroccoJordan, or Saudi Arabia, IYF continually refines the cultural relevancy of programming—including how we can make sure young women are gaining workforce entry.
