Conducting Interviews for Tamayyaz 5 Participants
On Monday, November 5, 2018, the Competency Development Unit at An-Najah University in cooperation with Sharek Youth Forum conducted interviews for Tamayyaz ('Excellence') program participants in the New Campus.
This year program included 150 university students of different disciplines of which 40 will enroll in the internship program.
Running for 6 years now, Tamayyaz ('Excellence') is the only truly national program of this nature, developing a network of youth across the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza. The program is implemented in partnership with the private sector, Palestinian universities, and civil society organizations.
Grounded in the 3 pillars of self-development, guided learning, and active citizenship, the Tamayyaz program holistically empowers young people to become more employable, active, and engaged citizens. This approach ensures that youth are not seen only as cogs within the labor force, but as individual human beings with their own needs and objectives. Through visits, guest lectures, and trainings, the program entrenches experiential learning, a key facet of its ongoing success. In contrast to the general situation of youth, over 90% of previous Tamayyaz graduates are employed, volunteering, or continuing their studies.
"Tamayyaz" program was launched on September 2012 and is considered the path for youth and graduate students to the labor market. As a result, more than 900 university students increased their motivation and improved their chances of competing in the labor market through this integrated program.
It was designed specifically for Palestinian university students over a period of two years and is implemented in cooperation with more than 55 Palestinian national companies and institutions.
