Deloitte Middle East: INJAZ al-Arab
Fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship
INJAZ al-Arab, a member of Junior Achievement Worldwide, seeks to instill a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship among Arab youth in the Middle East and North Africa. It does this by providing mentoring and training in cooperation with businesses and national ministries of education. INJAZ al-Arab programs have reached more than 500,000 students and involved some 10,000 volunteers.
The people of Deloitte Middle East have worked with 800 youth across the Middle East region. Partners and professionals from Deloitte Middle East serve as volunteers, teaching courses on entrepreneurship, economics, business skills, and leadership, and providing young people with the opportunity to learn about their professions by shadowing them at work. They also work with INJAZ al-Arab to build its capacity through skills-based volunteering and pro bono services.
Deloitte Middle East is helping scale the reach of INJAZ al-Arab’s education initiatives, including the Excellence through Ethics program, a business ethics curriculum developed for Junior Achievement Worldwide by Deloitte. It is also supporting INJAZ al-Arab to launch a new program, “Be Entrepreneurial”, which teaches entrepreneurial thinking and skills development to high school and university students, and will culminate with a regional business plan competition, where students and young adults will present their ideas to business leaders and compete for start-up financing.
