Vocational education orientation days in Jordan Valley

PS4L in cooperation with GIZ S4D program work on promoting vocational education using sports in different ways in marginalized areas in Palestine. This time it was an orientation day in the Jordan Valley

PS4L in cooperation with GIZ organised a sports and educational event in Jordan valley on 02 & 03 December to bring together the youth from Fasayil, Al-Jiftlik, az-Zubaidat, al-Auja, No’am and Duq.

We invited one hundred youth aged 15-17, girls and boys, to participate in a sports and life skills event on Friday in az-Zubaidat and on a vocational education orientation day at the YMCA Technical College on Saturday.

Our aim was to show the youth of Jordan valley in a fun way the opportunities for learning a profession in a nearby vocational school in Jericho and increasing their chances for their future careers.

The workshops included capabilities assessment and hands-on experience in the Jericho YMCA vocational school, giving the youth a chance to try how it would be to study and work in their field of interest.
