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.
