NBK de­vel­ops its sum­mer in­tern­ship pro­gram in par­tic­i­pa­tion with LOYAC

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Na­tional Bank of Kuwait (NBK) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with LOYAC is of­fer­ing so­cial ed­uca­tive train­ing pro­grams for youth par­tic­i­pat­ing in NBK’s an­nual sum­mer in­tern­ship pro­gram. These pro­grams aim at de­vel­op­ing knowl­edge and re­spon­si­bil­ity to­wards so­ci­ety. This new col­lab­o­ra­tion aims at en­hanc­ing the Sum­mer In­tern­ship Pro­gram with new chal­lenges and is part of the on­go­ing part­ner­ship be­tween NBK and LOYAC. The new train­ing ses­sions will in­clude an in­tro­duc­tion to the civil so­ci­ety sec­tor, high­light­ing Civic En­gage­ment and how values in­flu­ence be­hav­ior.

Yaqoub Al-Baqer, NBK Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, said: “The par­tic­i­pa­tion of LOYAC in this pro­gram is an added value for the stu­dents this year. They will have the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the value of vol­un­teer­ing and the im­por­tance of so­cial work.” Al-Baqer added: “NBK’s re­la­tion­ship with LOYAC ex­tends for years. We are happy to have this long stand­ing part­ner­ship with LOYAC”. The Sum­mer In­tern­ship first two ses­sions started on the 2nd and 16th of July, while the fol­low­ing ses­sions start on 30th of July to­day and 13th of Au­gust re­spec­tively. The Sum­mer In­tern­ship Pro­gram stands as an ex­ten­sion to NBK’s ed­uca­tive ini­tia­tives and is a part of its cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity.

The two-week cour­ses in this pro­gram are spe­cially de­signed for high school and col­lege stu­dents, be­tween 15 and 20 years old. The Pro­gram fea­tures a mix­ture of the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal train­ing. It is ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing the in­terns with in­valu­able knowl­edge on a va­ri­ety of sub­jects such as: the team­work, cre­ative think­ing, means of self-ex­pres­sion and mod­ern bank­ing, in ad­di­tion to help­ing them to have greater ex­po­sure to daily bank­ing work pro­ce­dures. The par­tic­i­pa­tion of LOYAC in this pro­gram ex­tends to in­clude ac­tiv­i­ties and vol­un­teer­ing ini­tia­tives. Trainees will have the chance to par­tic­i­pate in LOYAC’s park ren­o­va­tion project.
