About JuniorAchievement:

Junior Achievement Worldwide (JAW) is a non profit business education organization – a partnership between the business community, educators and volunteers – working together to empower young people to own their economic success.

The Job Market Situation:

“… 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

“..the educational sector is unable to keep up with the pace of development and demand for skills.” The World Bank

“.. an increasingly large number of youth will require educational opportunities that do not yet exist in either quantitative or qualitative terms.” The World Bank

“Part of the frustrations of job seekers is a mismatch between labor market requirements and national labor supply.” Mckinsey & Company

“Only 54% of Arab CEOs expressed satisfaction with their education systems to produce students with adequate skills.” 2009 PWC Survey

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

Steady Growth:

INJAZ UAE’s growth is credited to educators effort and trust in the impact of our programs as well as the active role of our business partners who provide corporate volunteers and financial support.


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.

INJAZ UAE Programs

  • * One day volunteer activities
    • How programs are delivered:
    • All programs are developed by Junior Achievement Worldwide and follow its model of volunteer based participation and corporate engagement. Programs are piloted, then localized to reflect the country’s economic activities, culture and language where necessary
    • Program impact is measured through Junior Achievement evaluation templates and Pre-Post tests that measure learning outcomes and impact for extended programs
    • JAW evaluation tools that are used: An attitudinal assessment, a pre and post evaluation for students completing extended programs, and a volunteer/teacher survey
    • Detailed program briefs are available upon request

Program Impact – Attitudinal Survey Results

92% reported that the things they learned with INJAZ UAE will help them get a good job in the future

87% reported that the things they learned will help them be successful in life

88% of participants said they have confidence they could compete successfully in a business environment

84% reported that INJAZ UAE taught them how to manage their money

83% of participants said that participating in INJAZ UAE helped prepare them for the world of work

60%of Company Program participants said that they’re more likely to consider starting a business in the future


Program Evaluation Results for 2012/2013:

Innovation Day Camp (I-Camps)

  • After participating in I-Camps, 50% of students enrolled in other programs within the same year:
  • 52% went for a Job Shadow Day visit
  • 16% participated in the Company program, which resulted in 19 student teams from 7 cities competing at the Annual Company Program Competition
  • 32% went for other Work Readiness Programs

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.”

How Can INJAZ UAE Support Educators

Work readiness. Entrepreneurship. Financial literacy.


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.

Supporting Educators Achieve their Goals

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
