About Junior Achievement:
Junior Achievement Worldwide (JAW) is a non profit business education organization – a partnership

The Job Market Situation:
“..the educational sector is unable
to keep up with the pace of
development and demand for
skills.” The World Bank
“… soft skills like communication,
teamwork, analytical skills and
innovative thinking were found to be
most important to Arab business
leaders who rated them at 90% or
above. Only 37% of Gulf CEOs are
satisfied with the quantity of skilled
students.” 2009 PWC Survey
“.. an increasingly large number of youth
will require educational opportunities that
do not yet exist in either quantitative or
qualitative terms.” The World Bank
“Only 54% of Arab CEOs
expressed satisfaction with
their education systems to
produce students with
adequate skills.” 2009 PWC
Survey
“Part of the
frustrations of job
seekers is a mismatch
between labor market
requirements and
national labor supply.”

“The GCC countries have a
unique demographic mix
with more than 40 per cent
of its population younger
than 15 years.” McKinsey &

Importance of Corporate Volunteers
Corporate volunteers bring real work knowledge and skills that are relevant to youth’s
education and professional future. Volunteers sign up by attending a 30 minute orientation
first, and depending on their program selection, are then required to attend a training to ensure
a successful and engaging experience . INJAZ UAE provides the training, materials, and
guidance to its volunteers.

Parent Testimonial:
“All educational, government and private institutions ought to adopt and support
INJAZ-UAE in everything they need; and I urge them to do so immediately. This is
because of the program’s ability to nurture our daughters’ abilities and
personalities. My daughter’s ideas have changed a lot after her experience with
INJAZ. She was shy and through INJAZ, that shyness and hesitation disappeared.
Her self-confidence increased and she started taking the initiative and expressing
her ideas, as if a challenge spirit was instilled in her. INJAZ shared the responsibility
of raising my daughter in a very professional way, which made a big positive
difference in her current and future life insha’Allah.
INJAZ ought to organize meetings, focus groups with parents, students and
volunteers who experienced the program as well as school administrators for its
effect on students. INJAZ’s school reach is not enough compared to the overall
number of students and schools in the country. It is a project that invests in people
– an unparalleled opportunity. It deserves full support. As much as I would like to
thank them, it will never be enough.”

Work readiness. Entrepreneurship. Financial literacy.
Supporting Educators Achieve their Goals
Why INJAZ UAE in the Classroom?
INJAZ UAE’s unique model provides the training
programs, materials and the support necessary to
bolster the chances for students’ future
economic and career success.
In partnership with colleges and universities, we
help arrange for business volunteers and local
business leaders to visit classrooms for a
workshop, a few sessions, or throughout the
semester, depending on the chosen program(s).
Volunteers share their experience with students,
transferring sound economic and work readiness
principles, which can reinforce your class
curricula. This helps open students’ minds to
their potential and prepares them for the
workplace.

Why this is important:
 Youth in the UAE lack the skills needed for
securing the right jobs in the private sector, let
alone considering self-employment and starting
a business as a future career option. This
requires educators and business partnerships to
come together in bridging the gap
 Youth may not be developing the right mindset
due to the lack of exposure of the private sector
and its requirements. Learned practical skills and
business knowledge raises youth’s awareness
and improves their readiness for the job market
 Most professional training programs address
post graduates, which may be too late in creating
the transferrable skills and attitudes needed to
succeed in the workplace
